Chinese esoteric Buddhism

Post by Javierfv1212 » Wed Sep 13, 2017 5:02 pm

I recently spent some time editing this article (its a hobby of mine).

My main source was : Orzech, Charles D. (ed) (2011). Esoteric Buddhism and the Tantras in East Asia.

Just thought you guys might be interested. Also if you guys have any feedback or notice glaring errors let me know. I am not exactly an expert on Zhenyan/Shingon
It is quite impossible to find the Buddha anywhere other than in one's own mind.

Amid those who are self-constrained, the Stable One would not posit as categorically true or false
anything seen, heard, or sensed, clung to and considered truth by others.
Since they have already seen this dart to which people cling and adhere,
saying “I know, I see, it is just so,”
the Tathāgatas cling to nothing.
-Kalaka sutta

The source you cited is pretty much state-of-the field. You might have included more than one sentence on Korean Esoteric Buddhism, but this is definitely a cut above a lot of Wiki articles, IMHO.
