The noble Prajna paramita. Sutra of the Great Vehicle "Samantabhadra"

    I bow down to all the Enlightened ones and Bodhisattvas!
    So I heard once. The blessed one was in a secluded place called Dharma-garbha in the land of Magadha. Together with him were the equal number of the smallest grains of sand of the land of the Enlightened Bodhisattvas that gathered from the countless countries of the Enlightened ones, [located] in ten directions.
    All of them were present [around the Blessed One], acting and gaining power in the prayer-benevolence of Samantabhadra. Then bodhisattva Samantabhadra sank into balance in deep concentration "Nonconceptual manifestation of all phenomena". The force of deep concentration began to shake all the equal grains of sand of the country of the Enlightened spheres of the universe. Then the Blessed one touched the head of bodhisattva Samantabhadra with his hand. Through his touch, he also shook the countries of the Enlightened ones.
    The gods gave praise in appropriate stanzas:
    The light of the universe that surpassed men and gods! Perfection, which is like an ocean of qualities! You are freeing beings from the ocean of being! You, pilot, we ask for full protection!
    Then bodhisattva Samantabhadra said to the Blessed one:
    Blessed one! How should one learn in wisdom and the corresponding wisdom of the essence, what should one know?
    The Blessed one replied:
    Samantabhadra! The wisdom of the Wanderers from worldly gatherings is only like wisdom. But wisdom itself [appears] starting from the first level.
    The blessed one said so. Bodhisattva Samantabhadra and the entire universe, along with the gods and people, rejoiced and praised what was said to the Blessed ones.
    Thus ends the Great Chariot Sutra "the noble Samantabhadra".
