The Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra was an encyclopedic collection of Prajnaparamita texts, translated into Chinese by Xuanzang and his assistants.[1] Alternatively, this name refers to the Large Sutra on the Perfection of Wisdom (Skt. Pancavimsatisahasrika-prajnaparamita-sutra, meaning 25,000-Line Perfection of Wisdom Sutra) (Chinese mo-ho po-jo po-lo-mi ching, whence the name Mahaprajnaparamita Sutra).[2]
