The Diamond Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra

Section 12

“Furthermore, Subhuti, you should know that all the divinities, human beings, and asuras throughout this world should make offerings at that place where even a four-line gāthā of this sūtra is recited, just as if it were a stūpa or a shrine of a buddha; and even more is this case if there is person who is able fully to accept, keep, read, and recite it. Subhuti, you should know that this person masters the most supreme and rarest of dharmas. Wherever this sūtra might be, there is found the Buddha or an esteemed disciple.”
