The Angulimaliya Sutra is a Buddhist scripture belonging to the Tathagatagarbha class of sutras, which teach that the Buddha is eternal, that the non Self and emptiness teachings only apply to the worldly sphere (not the nirvanic), and that the tathagatagarbha (buddha essence) is real and immanent within all beings and all phenomena. It must not be confused with the Angulimala Sutta, a completely different work included in the Majjhima Nikaya of the Pali Canon.
