The sūtra known as The Absorption That Encapsulates All Merit (Skt. Sarvapuṇya­samuccaya­samādhi, Tib. བསོད་ནམས་ཐམས་ཅད་བསྡུས་པའི་ཏིང་ངེ་འཛིན།, Wyl. bsod nams thams cad bsdus pa’i ting nge ’dzin) is found in the General Sūtra (mdo sde) section of the Tibetan Kangyur (Toh. 134).

This sūtra tells the story of Vimalatejā, 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.
