Description

Part Two begins by describing the virtues and causal conditions of the assembly that has gathered at the bodhimanda to hear the Flower Adornment Sutra. It then focuses on the celestial beings mentioned in Part One, proceeding from the Heavens of the Form Realm down through the Heavens of the Desire Realm. For each type of heaven, there is a prose section explaining the passage into liberation attained by each of the beings representing that type of heaven. Each prose section is followed by verses spoken by those beings, describing their realizations as well as priasing the Buddhas.

    The Sixth Patriarch’s Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra Second Edition $30.00

    “The knowledge and vision of the Buddha is just your own mind; there is no other Buddha.” Such is the teaching of Master Huineng (638–713), the most important and most revered figure in the Chan (Zen) School of East Asian Buddhism. Huineng left no written record, but his students compiled accounts of his public lectures and one-on-one exchanges, together with the dramatic story of his life. The resulting volume is The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra, "sixth" because Master Huineng is counted as the sixth generation of patriarchal succession from the first Chan patriarch Bodhidharma. Master Huineng's Platform Sutra is so highly regarded in Buddhist Asia that it is called a Sutra, a term otherwise reserved for texts spoken by the Buddha himself Editors: Martin Verhoeven, PhD, University of Wisconsin- Madison Rev. Heng Sure, MA, UC Berkeley; PhD, Graduate Theological Union Publication Date: August 27, 2014 1,300th (plus one year) anniversary of the passing of the Sixth Patriarch (713 AD) ISBN: 978-1-60103-070-2 Hardcover In English, Appendix: full sutra text in Chinese
