One of eight sheets of calligraphy, each consisting of a line from the verse (gāthā) sung by the King Prasenajit to the Buddha in the Humane King Sutra (Ch: Ren Wang Jing 仁王經), following the text of the eighth century version by Amogha (Ch: Bu Kong 不空, Taishō Tripitaka vol. 8, no. 246, pp. 834-839). The order of the accession numbers does not match the order of the lines in the original sutra text. The correct order is: D,E,B,G,C,A,F,H. This one reads: 三賢十聖忍中行
