THE SUTRA OF COMPLETE ENLIGHTENMENT
Translated from the Chinese of Buddhatrata by Ven. Guo-go Bhikshu
Thus have I heard. At one time the Bhagavan entered the Samadhi of the Great
Illuminating Storehouse of Spiritual Penetration.1 This is the samadhi in which all
Tathagatas brightly and majestically abide. It is the ground of the pure enlightenment of
all sentient beings.
[The Bhagavan’s] body and mind were in the state of quiescent-extinction,2 where
past, present, and future are intrinsically equal and identical,3 and his completeness
filled all ten directions, and was in accord with everything without duality. From within
this condition of nonduality, he caused various Pure Lands to appear.
[The Bhagavan] was accompanied by one hundred thousand great bodhisattvas
and mahasattvas. Chief among them were Bodhisattva Manjusri, Bodhisattva
Samantabhadra, Bodhisattva of Universal Vision, Bodhisattva Vajragarbha, Bodhisattva
Maitreya, Bodhisattva of Pure Wisdom, Bodhisattva at Ease in Majestic Virtue,
Bodhisattva of Sound Discernment, Bodhisattva Cleansed of All Karmic Obstructions,
Bodhisattva of Universal Enlightenment, Bodhisattva of Complete Enlightenment, and
Bodhisattva Foremost in Virtue and Goodness. Together with their retinues they all
entered samadhi, abiding in the Tathagata’s Dharma assembly of impartial equality.
