With the paramita of spiritual penetrations they universally enter the world. Relying upon the Paramita of Samadhi, they obtain ease and comfort of mind.

With regard to the Buddha's Dharma body, they have attained self-mastery. And according to those who should be transformed, they will manifest a body. With one body, they can fill up all Buddha kshetras. They have attained comfortable, pure spiritual penetrations, and riding the Great Wisdom Boat, their neither travel is unobstructed. Their wisdom is perfected, pervading the Dharma Realm. This is like the rising sun, which pervasively illumines the world. According to the thoughts of living beings, they manifest their form. They know of all living beings' root nature, their desires and delights, and enter the state of non-contention of all dharmas.

They know that the nature of all dharmas is not produced and does not arise, and cause the small and the great to mutually enter each other with ease. They decisively understand the Buddha’s Buddhas' ground and its profound tendencies.

With endless phrases they proclaim the profound meaning, and within each phrase they proclaim all of the seas of sutras.

They universally enter all the Dharma realms of the ten directions, and regardless of the direction and place, there is none which they do not reach. Within every dustmote, they manifest the accomplishment of Proper Enlightenment. Within the nature that is without form, they manifest all forms.

From within all directions they enter one direction. All of these Bodhisattvas, replete with the above treasury of boundless blessings, wisdom, merit and virtue, are constantly praised and extolled by all the Buddhas.

With all types of languages and words their merit and virtue is spoken of, but it cannot be exhaustively expressed. There were none who were not there in the Jeta Grove. They were profoundly immersed in the Thus Come One’s great sea of merit and virtue, and all could see how they were illumined by the Buddha's light.
