It is like a jewel mine because the jewels of all good qualities come forth [from it]. The seventh, accompanied by the perfection of patience is where he says, A Bodhisattva, a great being who wants to establish in forbearance those who think they have been wronged, who wants to surpass [18] the forbearance of Listeners and Pratyekabuddhas by means of one single production of a thought associated with rejoicing should train in the perfection of wisdom. It is like a great sea because it is unmoved, even in the face of what is dreaded the most.
