The Large Sutra on Perfect Wisdom: With the Divisions of the Abhisamayalankara
Thats a mouthful title!
A full translation of the 100,000 line perfection of wisdom sutra. Buddha Shakyamuni explains the evolution of beings into bodhisattvas and buddhas. A major portion of the traditional training offered in Tibetan monasteries is based on this text.
The famous Heart sutra and Diamond sutra have been known in the West for many years, but they are merely condensations of the original Large Sutra of Perfect Wisdom.
