“For the sake of the Buddha Path, the bodhisattvas in this great assembly have already diligently practiced vigor for an incalculable number of tens of millions of kotis of kalpas. They have become skillful in entering, abiding in, and emerging from an incalculable number of trillions of kotis of samadhis. They have gained great superknowledges, have long cultivated the brahman conduct, and have become well able to practice in appropriate sequence all of the good dharmas.”
