Bodhisattva keyūra mūlakarma sūtra
This sutra belongs to the canon of the Vinaya. By relying on it, Buddhist disciples can avoid committing the grievous deed of false speech. According to the sacred teachings of Buddhism, the Path to Buddhahood consists of 53 stages. The first ten stages are the Ten Faith Stages, which set forth the disciples’ correct full faith in the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha and enable them to understand that the true essence of the Three Jewels can be achieved only through the eighth consciousness, tathāgatagarbha . In addition, the bodhisattva garland gems of virtue that the disciples of the Fourfold Assembly should permeate and practice in succession are the Bronze Treasure Garland, the Silver Treasure Garland, the Gold Treasure Garland, the Lazurite Treasure Garland, the Mani Treasure Garland, and the Crystal Clear Garland. Only through these garlands, as the adorned contents of the Bodhi Path, can practitioners sequentially enhance themselves through realization and comprehension to gain a penetrative understanding of the Dharma—the true essential Dharma teachings of the Path to Buddhahood. This sutra also sets out the stage of the Mahayana Bodhi Path of Vision, that which is termed the notion of “the correct direct observation of the sixth perfection of prajñāpāramitā,” and explains how to become a true bodhisattva of the Path of Vision. Otherwise, one will definitely regress from the path of cultivation.
