The Buddha said to Sariputra, "Very good, very good. It is just as you have said. And Sariputra, the Tathagata is like this. That is, He is a Father to all the world. His fears, cares and anxieties, ignorance and misunderstanding, have long come to an end, leaving no residue. He has fully succeeded in acquiring measureless insight, power and freedom from fear and gaining great supernatural powers and the power of wisdom. He is endowed with expedient means and the paramita (perfection) of wisdom, His great pity and great compassion are constant and unflagging; at all times He seeks what is good and will bring benefit to all.
