General definition (in Buddhism)
Vyākaraṇa (व्याकरण):—The predictions relating to the nine paths (navamārga) of beings, i.e., (1–3) the paths of the three Vehicles (triyānamārga) and (4–9) the paths of the six destinies (ṣaḍgatimārga) are called vyākaraṇa.Source: Wisdom Library: The Treatise on the Great Virtue of Wisdom, Volume V
Vyākaraṇa (व्याकरण) is also found in Mahāyāna-sūtras but with a different meaning. Vyākaraṇa , in these Buddhist texts, means a prediction or prophecy by a Buddha to a Bodhisattva who has just embarked on the path, that he will achieve enlightenment and be a Buddha.Source: WikiPedia: Buddhism
