The Heart of the Path

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Fri Apr 24, 2009 9:42 pm

Maybe this forum should be titled Sutra & Shastra Studies.

In any case, this book by Lama Zopa Rinpoche is sub-titled Seeing the Guru as Buddha. It has a Foreword by HH Sakya Trizin, a glossary, index, bibliography and is almost 500 pages.

Here is a little about it:

Every time you recite Amita Buddha’s name, a ray of light shines through empty space. If you recite very sincerely, then this light fills up the universe, so that the energy of all worlds will be auspicious and harmonious.

The old link above still works and the 'little about it' is actually the entire text online.

The Avatamsaka Sutra among others, is full of the need for and the value of, a 'good knowing advisor'.
