阿耨多羅・無上 (Skt, Pali; Jpn anokutara or mujo )
Unsurpassed, supreme, highest, peerless, or incomparably excellent. Anuttara is a component of various Buddhist terms. Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi means the supreme and perfect Enlightenment of a Buddha. Anuttara-Dharma-chakra means the Wheel of the unsurpassed Law. Anuttara is also one of the ten honorable titles of a Buddha and in this context is rendered as "unexcelled worthy." This title signifies that a Buddha stands supreme among all living beings.
