Synopsis:
This sutra is a discourse on untying the knots of confusion that enmesh beings in Samsara. In some traditions, it is considered a Sutra of Definitive Meaning, a teaching from the third-turning of the wheel of dharma, and a central text for the Yogacara school of philosophy.

In the Samdhinirmocana Sutra great bodhisattvas question the Buddha about the nature of consciousness, the character of the ultimate, the stages of the bodhisattva path, and the embodiment of the tathagatha. The Buddha responds with the clear voice of perfect realization, illuminating the meditative practices and views that eliminate obstacles to enlightenment. An incisive guide to the compassionate path of the bodhisattva for more than two millennia, this sutra has influenced Buddhist thinkers and practitioners in every country touched by the Mahayana.

The translation and the Tibetan text are presented on facing pages.
