87. The Story of Sarvaṃdada

mahāntaṃ dharmasaṃbhāraṃ mahājanahitāvahaṃ |
mahāvastuṃ mahājñānaṃ bhadantasugatena hi |
sarvasatvānāṃ hitāya saṃbuddhena prakāśitaṃ ||

ye ca deśenti saddharmaṃ śṛṇonti ye ca deśitaṃ |
sarve te adhigacchanti nirvāṇapadam acyutaṃ ||

sarvaṃdadasya pura jātir abhūṣi siddhā
ācāradānadamathair jagatīhiteṣī |
savighnarūpacarito tad abhūṣi śakro

so nirmiṇitva narakaṃ sarvadasya tasya
ye dānaśūraguṇavāṃ prapatanti atra |
saṃhṛtya vīra vata taṃ duḥkham evarūpaṃ
dānaṃ nidānaṃ sarvasatva sukhī bhavantu ||
