The King of the Array of All Dharma Qualities (Skt. Sarvadharmaguṇavyūharāja; Tib. ཆོས་ཐམས་ཅད་ཀྱི་ཡོན་ཏན་བཀོད་པའི་རྒྱལ་པོ་; Wyl. chos thams cad kyi yon tan bkod pa’i rgyal po). At the request of the bodhisattvas Vajrapāṇi and Avalokiteśvara, the Buddha teaches his audience on a selection of brief but disparate topics belonging to the general Mahāyāna tradition: how to search for a spiritual friend and live in solitude, the benefits of venerating Avalokiteśvara’s name, the obstacles that Māra may create for practitioners, and warnings on how easy it is to lose one’s determination to be free from saṃsāra. The sūtra also includes two dhāraṇī that the Buddha and Vajrapāṇi teach in turn. [1]
