Miscellaneous Agama Sutra
One of the four Chinese Agama sutras. It is a Chinese translation in fifty volumes by Gunabhadra (394-468), a monk from central India. It is actually a collection of about thirteen hundred short sutras of succinct content that address doctrines on suffering, emptiness, impermanence, and nonself, as well as the eightfold path. The Miscellaneous Agama Sutra is thought to correspond to the Pali text Samyutta-nikaya, a collection of about twenty-nine hundred short sutras.
