Diamond Storehouse
金剛蔵菩薩 (Skt Vajragarbha; Jpn Kongozoᆳbosatsu)

    One of the four great Bodhisattvas appearing in the Flower Garland Sutra, the other three being Dharma Wisdom, Forest of Merits, and Diamond Banner. The preaching of the Flower Garland Sutra is described as occurring in eight successive assemblies in seven different locations, beginning at the place of Shakyamuni Buddha's Enlightenment and then shifting to various heavens. At the sixth assembly, held in the Heaven of Freely Enjoying Things Conjured by Others, the Bodhisattva Diamond Storehouse expounds the Doctrine of the ten stages of development, or the forty-first through the fiftieth of the fifty-two stages of Bodhisattva practice.
