The Storehouse of the Sundry Valuables includes such famous stories as the narrative of the spiritual and political relationship of King Kaniṣka with Aśvaghoṣa (Fascicle 7) and how the monk Nāgasena caused King Milinda to embrace the Buddhist faith (Fascicle 9). A number of these tales appear to be based on historical facts, and such internal evidence, such as the appearance of King Kaniṣka, confirms that this work was compiled after the second century C.E.

Translated by Kiṃkārya and Tan-yao into the Chinese as Zabao zang jing (雜寶藏經). 10 fascicles. .
