6. Description Abstract In this chapter, the author discusses the Avataṃsaka Sūtra. Of Mahāyāna sūtras, the Kegon, the Hokke (Saddharma-Puṇḍarīka) and the Nehan (Nirvāṇa) sūtras are the most outstanding, and among these the Kegon is important because it is considered to be the teaching given out by the Buddha Śākyamuni just after his enlightenment, and in consequence his enlightenment is made the centre or pivot of the sūtra’s substance.
