Thinking of Amitabha Buddha

Another fine translation of sutras by Rulu; more than just the standard Pure Land sutras. Check Amazon for the Table of Contents etc.

A man should not judge a man, for he harms himself very quickly, that man who judges a man. Only I or someone like me can assess a man.

An example of a sutra in this collection not exclusively focused on Amita Buddha:

Who is this Rulu person? I've read sutras on that sight before but never noticed they were all translated by the same person.
"All the suffering of the lower realms, whatever difficulty and unhappiness we may experience as human beings, as well as every other possible suffering of the three realms of existence, have their origin in cherishing ourselves more than others."

Must be a personal copy or a supplier issue. I think I got mine for $20 brand new directly from the author. The translations without the commentary are freely accessible on sutrasmantras.info
