Lotus Sutra: a Biography, by Donald Lopez, excerpt

Post by Queequeg » Fri Sep 30, 2016 8:13 pm

Prof. Lopez has a new book out, Lotus Sutra: a Biography.

An excerpt has been published at Lion's Roar:

http://www.lionsroar.com/what-happens-i ... scripture/
Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
-Ayacana Sutta
