This sutra, commonly referred to as the Diamond Sutra (Jin
Gang Jing), is central to the massive seven hundred and one volumes of
the so-called Wisdom Teachings of the Buddha.
This second edition
sheds new light on “the teaching beyond words and letters.”
called “the diamond teaching that cuts through all delusion,” the Diamond Sutra is Shakyamuni Buddha’s stunning answer to his
disciple Subhuti’s question about enlightenment.
