After the Buddha had passed away, Bodhisattva Wonderfully Bright upheld the Sutra of the Lotus of the Wonderful Dharma, for a period of fully eighty small kalpas expounding it for others. The eight sons of the Buddha Sun Moon Bright all acknowledged Wonderfully Bright as their teacher. Among the eight hundred diciples of Wonderfully Bright was one named Seeker of Fame. He was greedy for gain and support, and though he read and recited numerous sutras, he could not understand them, but for the most part forget them. Hence he was called Seeker of Fame. Because this man had in addition plant various good roots, however, he was able to encouter immeasurable hundreds, thousands, ten thousands, millions of Buddhas, to make offrings to them, revere, honor and praise them. Maitreya, you should understand this. Bodhisattva Wonderfully Bright who lived then- could he be known to you? He was no other than I myself. And Bodhisattva Seeker of Fame was you.
