This sutra, The Teaching by the Child Inconceivable Radiance (Skt. Acintya-prabhāsa-nirdeśa; Tib. ཁྱེའུ་སྣང་བ་བསམ་གྱིས་མི་ཁྱབ་པས་བསྟན་པ།, Wyl. khye’u snang ba bsam gyis mi khyab pas bstan pa) is a story in which the spiritual realization of the child is revealed through a dialogue with the Buddha Shakyamuni. The Buddha furthermore recounts events from the child’s past lives to illustrate how actions committed in one life will determine one’s future circumstances. The teaching concludes with the Buddha prophesying how the child Inconceivable Radiance will eventually fully awaken in the future.[1]
