thank you very much for your advice. Now I got Conze's _Materials for a
Dictionary of the Prajnaparamita Literature_ from our UniBib. There are
many interesting things in it - but no sāgara-mudrā-samādhi :-(
In the preface Conze mentions some shortcomings, e.g.:
"An explanation is needed of the usage with regard to the very difficult
und largely incomprehensible esoteric terminology in describing the
samadhis of a Bodhisattva."
Thank you very much,
