This short yet important sutra gives us a picture of the entire range of the Buddha’s teachings, from the basic to the profound. With its repeated emphasis on the importance of eliminating desire and greed, this sutra is excellent medicine for our society, which is plagued by materialism and over consumption. This was the first sutra transmitted from India to China and was brought by two extraordinary Indian monks on a white horse around 67 C.E. This prompted the emperor of China to establish the White Horse Monastery at Loyang. Tripitaka Master Hua’s commentary gives clear and straight forward explanations illustrating the principles of orthodox Buddhism.
