Quotation from the sutra

Bhagavan, bodhisattvas should not learn many teachings.
Bhagavan, if bodhisattvas grasp and know one teaching, they will have all the Buddhas’ teachings in the palm of their hand.
What is this one teaching?
It is great compassion.
Bhagavan, with great compassion all the Buddha’s teachings are in the bodhisattvas’ palm.
For example, Bhagavan, wherever the precious wheel of a universal sovereign is, there also is the assembly of his battalions.
Likewise, Bhagavan, wherever the bodhisattvas’ great compassion is, there are all the Buddha’s teachings.
For example, Bhagavan, once there is a life force, all the other sensory faculties will exist.
Bhagavan, similarly, once great compassion exists, all the other bodhisattvas’ qualities will appear. [1]
