English Mahayana Sutras

Postby Christopherxx » Wed Aug 06, 2014 10:54 pm

Where in the world does everyone find the English versions of sutras like the heart, lotus, etc. I would love to read more on these but can never find the full copies in English. Are there any translators like Ven. Bodhi working on the Mahayana side?

Links please :)

There is this thing called Google search - try using 'mahayana sutras online'
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

I'm confused. Christopherxx, are you saying that you can't find an English translation of the Heart Sutra?

Thanks guys I appreciate it. I'm not sure why but when I was looking it up I just wasn't getting the same results (hopefully that answers wills question).

Definitely appreciate the time and resources :)
