From Buddha-Nature


'phags pa shes rab kyi pha rol tu phyin pa brgyad stong pa
fo shuo fo mu chu sheng fa cang ban ruo bo luo mi jing
The Perfection of Wisdom in Eight Thousand Lines

This sūtra takes the form of a series of dialogues between the Buddha Śākyamuni, Subhūti, Śāriputra, and others such as Indra, the king of gods, and a Goddess of the Ganges, and as well as setting out the teachings on emptiness as such it describes the path and practices that a bodhisattva should take to integrate this understanding of phenomena and finally realize it. A special feature of this particular sūtra are the inspirational narratives of Sadāprarudita and his quest for the teachings on the Perfection of Wisdom from the Bodhisattva Dharmodgata, contained in the final three chapters.
