Prajñãpãramitã

Prajñāpāramitā is a goddess of Wisdom. She is closely associated with the Perfection of Wisdom tradition, and indeed her name is usually translated as “Perfection of Wisdom”. The Perfection of Wisdom tradition is one of the two great philosophical traditions of Mahāyana Buddhism. It is closely associated with Nagārjuna who is said to have retrieved the texts from the Nagas. Prajñāpāramitā is the personification of the prajñā. Vessantara calls her “the book that became a goddess”, and the tradition itself refers to her as the “Mother of all the Buddhas“.
