Flower Adornment Sutra - Chapters 28 and 29
Price: $26.00
Product ID : EnglishSutras36



Chapter Twenty-nine is called “The Ten Patiences.” SamÁdhi is needed to attain spiritual powers. In addition, you must be patient if you wish to attain them; and patience is very difficult. The Chinese character for patience is a picture of a knife blade above the heart. In other words, being patient can be as painful as when one’s heart is pierced with a knife, and such pain is hard to bear. Nevertheless, one must bear what is impossible to bear. If Bodhisattvas can perfect these ten kinds of patience, they will attain the positions of unobstructed patience of all Bodhisattvas.
