This book, written in five volumes, represents an encyclopedia on Buddhism as well as a commentary on the Pancavimsatisahasrika Prajnaparamita.

The Buddha said: “The yogin should recollect the Dharma, skillfully presented, obtaining its retribution in the present lifetime (sāṃdṛṣṭika) without fear of burning (nirjvara), independent of time (akālika), leading to the good place (aupanāyika), the penetration into which is unhindered.”
