In The Teaching of Akshayamati (Skt. Akṣayamatinirdeśa; Tib. བློ་གྲོས་མི་ཟད་པས་བསྟན་པ།, Wyl. blo gros mi zad pas bstan pa) the bodhisattva Akshayamati arrives in our world from the buddha field of the buddha Samantabhadra. In response to Shariputra’s questions, Akshayamati gives a discourse on the subject of imperishability. In all, Akshayamati explains that there are eighty different aspects of the Dharma that are imperishable. When he has given this explanation, the Buddha praises it and declares it worthy of being spread by the countless bodhisatvas gathered there to listen.[1]


The Tibetan translation of this sutra can be found in the General Sutra section of the Tibetan Kangyur, Toh 175.
