Earth Store Sutra In English

Post by teatimes.me » Sat May 05, 2012 1:15 pm

I have been reciting Earth Store Sutra in Chinese, I am wondering if anybody has experience reciting in English? The reason is that I found it very effective in reducing bad karma from the past, and I want to introduce this approach to English speakers. Any success stories? Which translation version did you recite? Thanks.

English or any language will produce merit, if the motive is good. I use the Buddhist Text Translation Society versions (there are two).

It is not a matter of achieving Bodhi or attaining Buddhahood. Rather, you yourself become aware that your own mind has always been fully enlightened.
