In this sutra, The Jewel Mine (Skt. Ratnākara; Tib. དཀོན་མཆོག་འབྱུང་གནས།, Wyl. dkon mchog 'byung gnas), Buddha Shakyamuni recounts how the thus-gone Sarvarthasiddha purified the buddha realms in his domain. In his explanation, the Buddha Shakyamuni emphasizes the view of the Mahayana, which he explains as the fundamental basis for all bodhisattvas who aspire to attain liberation. The associated topics taught by the Buddha are the six paramitas of generosity, discipline, patience, diligence, concentration, and wisdom.[1]
