Readings from the lotus sutra

Readings, Meditations and Discussions

The Lotus Sūtra (Sanskrit: Saddharma Puṇḍarīka Sūtra, lit. 'Sūtra of the White Lotus of the True Dharma') is one of the most influential and venerated Buddhist Mahāyāna sutras.

 

In this class I will offer readings, meditations and discussions on the Lotus Sūtra. Each chapter of this large text is a treasure. We will look at a selection of inspiring and deeply meaningful parables:

  • the Parable of the Burning House
  • the Parable of the Medicinal Herbs
  • the Parable of the Prodigal Son
  • the Parable of the Apparitional City

as well as reading the significant chapters on

  • The Lifespan of the Buddha
  • and on the Bodhisattva of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara.

 

All are welcome.
