In his Jin’gangding jing yujie shibahui zhigui 金剛頂經瑜伽十八會指歸 T869 Amoghavajra claimed that the Diamond Pinnacle Sūtra was composed of eighteen component texts, referred to as “assemblies” (hui 會). Goble cites Giebel who has identified several extant texts related to the assemblies mentioned by Amoghavajra. These include Yiqie rulai jin’gang sanye zuishang mimi dajiaowang jing 一切如來金剛三業最上祕密大教王經 T885 and Foshuo zuishang genben dalejin’gang bukong sanmei dajiaowang jing 佛說最上根本大樂金剛不空三昧大教王經 T244. Goble stresses that these texts do not correspond to the assemblies discussed by Amoghavajra but “seem only to be related to those assemblies.” Giebel, Rolf W.
