puke blood and die

Post by diamind » Mon Oct 23, 2017 5:56 am

So,

I can definitely remember reading a passage where the Buddha said something like " if I were to talk about the sufferings in the lower realms the bodhisattvas would puke blood and die". correct?

Is there also a similar quote mentioned about unripe disciples hearing the perfection wisdom sutras? or a tantra?

Yes. I think it's either the Perfection of Wisdom in 8,000 Lines or the Perfection of Wisdom in 100,000 Lines. Not exactly sure which one.
