Śūraṃgamasamādhisūtra, (“The Concentration of Heroic Progress: An Early Mahayana Buddhist Scripture”), is a study and translation of the Śūraṅgama Samādhi Sūtra (Śgs.) by Étienne Lamotte.

The first portion of the book is an introduction to Buddhological matters relevant to the text. The introduction is divided into two chapters.

1) The first chapter discusses the contents of the Śūraṅgama Samādhi Sūtra, the sources of the Śgs., the Śgs.'s place within Mahayana literature, and the samādhi in the vehicles of the Bodhisattvas and the Śrāvakas. The introduction discusses the application, in both Hinayana and Mahayana, of the terms bodhisattva, deva, samādhi, and śravaka. The doctrinal matters, particularly the doctrinal position of Śgs. among the sutras of Mahayana, are the main subject of this section.

2) The second chapter discusses the Chinese and Tibetan versions of the Śgs.
