    Gandavyuha Sutra

    I think it's the last chapter of the Flower Garland Sutra. I don't know if it's available online. I just stole the quote!

    Maybe this works on Google: "Sudhana's miraculous journey in the temple of the Ta pho", by Ernst Steinkellner.

    Gandavyuha Sutra

    Here's a non-Cleary translation!

    I think it's chapter 39, but I don't have the time to check now.
