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'

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

All over literally, but here is a decent place to start.

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 :)

Your local bookstore is a good place to start.
I don't know anything about Hongaku Jodo.
