King of Vows

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Thu Feb 07, 2013 2:20 am

This short, yet powerfully uplifting text is found at the end of the Avatamsaka Sutra. Here is a very good, short commentary by Lochen Dharmashri (17th cent.) that I just discovered.

The Gate of Entry into the Limitless Activities of the Supreme Noble Ones. The commentary is only 30 pages or so; 2nd printing of 2012; tr. by Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche & Gerry Wiener

I suppose there are other English commentaries in print, but I cannot think of one.
A bodhisattva does not become weary of evil beings nor does he commit the error of bringing forth thoughts inclined to reject them and cast them aside. Avatamsaka Sutra, ch. 25

Here is an online one: http://kalachakranet.org/teachings/com- ... 06-ltr.pdf

Who the commentator is, Jang Lung Pandita, I do not know.

Also I forgot that Master Hua, in his Avatamsaka Sutra commentary does cover these verses.
