Hello everyone,

I have been searching for this particular sutra for a long time and still haven't found it on-line. I have only found the MahaVairocana Sutra (which, in shingon-shu, complements it). I would deeply appriciate if someone could help on that...

are you looking for the Vajrasekhara Sutra? you may wish to check the volume Two Esoteric Sutras, trans. Rolf Giebel

Is the 'The Adamantine Pinnacle Sutra', the Vajrashekara Sutra?

I don't have the book with me right now, so I can't confirm except by memory, but I believe that's how it is translated in that text.

Can't find the sutra on line. Can't afford the book for the time being. If a fellow brother or sister has a solution about it I would be glad to hear it. Thnx in advance...

I could not find an English translation online. However, having followed a path of searches from the Chinese version (Taisho Tripitaka Vol. 39, No. 1798), I found this from a webpage (http://mbingenheimer.net/tools/bibls/transbibl.html) that there is an English translation:

Quote:
T39n1798: Jin gang ding jing da yu qie mi mi xin di fa men yi jue 金剛頂經大瑜伽祕密心地法門義訣
e1 (T 1798: 39.808a19-b28)
“Instructions on the Gate to the Teaching of the Secret Heart of Great Yoga of the Scripture of the Diamond Tip”
translated by: Charles Orzech
In: Buddhism in Practice. Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1995. pp. 316-317.

Perhaps you can look into finding that publication?
