The Wonderful Dharma Lotus Flower Sutra

first 10 volumes edited by Kuo-lin (Nancy Lethcoe), PhD
 

This Sutra, more commonly known in English as the Lotus Sutra, is one of the major Buddhist texts of East Asia. It was spoken in the last period of Shakyamuni Buddha’s life and proclaims the ultimate principles of the Dharma, which unite all previous teaching into one. In this Sutra the Buddha uses parables to explain that all beings can become enlightened. He explains the purpose of his teaching by means of analogy of a father who tries to rescue his children from a burning house. He uses a rain cloud to illustrate how his teaching benefits all beings with impartiality. He also bestows predictions of Buddhahood upon his disciples.
English translation of the text with commentary by Master Hua is available in 16 volumes.
