Bhumi

Bhūmi (Skt.; T. sa; C. di; J. ji; K. chi 地) literally means "ground" or "foundation". In the Mahayana tradition, the term is used to refer to the stages in the path of a bodhisattva.

The most common list of bhumis are the ten bhumis identified in the Dasabhumika Sutra.

The ten bhumis are commonly described in the context of the five paths.
