In the Vajrasamadhi-sutra, the Buddha lectures to an assembly of bodhisattvas, shravakas, arhats and all the various classes of beings which exist in the universe, on the subtlest doctrines concerning existence, nonexistence and perfect enlightenment.
The overall tone of the sutra is of repentance in order to purify karma and become a perfect Buddha. The leading intercolutors in the sutra are shravaka Ananda, bodhisattva Kshitigarbha, arhat Shariputra and the bodhisattva Cittaraja (mind-king).
