Sutra's where can I by some?

Post by gingercatni » Fri May 27, 2011 6:37 pm

Can anyone direct me to a bookstore online that sells pureland sutra's? I would like to have them in book form rather than downloads. Thanks! :namaste:

An outstanding translation by the Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research:

The Three Pure Land Sutras (Bdk English Tripitaka Translation Series)

Nicely bound, hardcover.

This translation by Gomez has both the Sanskrit & Chinese versions:

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.

There are also some good ebooks. Unfortunatly, you will find maybe something like 10-15 (is so much!) ebooks on pureland, only. I would like to see more than that.

BTTS has updated their website, so here is the Amitabha Sutra with Master Hua's comments:
