The sutra known as The Absorption That Encapsulates All Merit (Skt. Sarvapuṇya­samuccaya­samādhi; Tib. བསོད་ནམས་ཐམས་ཅད་བསྡུས་པའི་ཏིང་ངེ་འཛིན་, sö nam tam ché dü pé ting ngé dzin, Wyl. bsod nams thams cad bsdus pa’i ting nge ’dzin) is found in the General Sutra section of the Tibetan Kangyur (Toh 134).

This sutra tells the story of Vimalateja, a strongman renowned for his physical prowess, who visits the Buddha in order to compare abilities and prove that he is the mightier of the two. The Buddha responds by teaching on the powers of the awakened beings.
