From Buddha-Nature


'phags pa shes rab kyi pha rol tu phyin pa rdo rje gcod pa zhes bya ba theg pa chen po'i mdo
Dà bōrě jīng dì jiǔ huì néng duàn jīngāng

One of the most revered and recited scriptures of the perfection of wisdom genre (prajñāpāramitāsūtras), perhaps second only to the Heart Sūtra, both of which became especially popular in the East Asian Buddhist traditions. It is a crucial source for Mahāyāna tenets of selflessness and the emptiness of phenomena, and its discourse is framed as an explanation of how to enter into the vehicle of the bodhisattvas by developing and sustaining their enlightened perspective.

Relevance to Buddha-nature

Though this is generally considered an important source text for the Madhayamaka teachings, it is quoted in the Uttaratantra, though it is not explicitly cited as the source of the quotation.
