The Diamond Prajñāpāramitā Sūtra

Section 24

“Subhuti, if someone were to amass a pile of the seven types of jewels equal to all the Sumerus, the king of mountains, throughout the trichiliocosm and use that to make offerings; or if there were someone who was able to accept, keep, read, and recite even a four-line gāthā of this prajñāpāramitā-sūtra and teach it to others, that person’s merit will be a hundred, thousand, ten-thousand, or a million times greater than that preceding merit; it is so much greater that it exceeds any possible analogy for its computation.
