Sutra's where can I by some?

Postby gingercatni » Fri May 27, 2011 6:37 pm

Can anyone direct me to a bookstore online that sells pureland sutra's? I would like to have them in book form rather than downloads. Thanks! :namaste:

An outstanding translation by the Numata Center for Buddhist Translation and Research:

The Three Pure Land Sutras (Bdk English Tripitaka Translation Series)

http://www.amazon.com/Three-Sutras-Engl ... 716&sr=8-1

Nicely bound, hardcover.

This translation by Gomez has both the Sanskrit & Chinese versions:

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.

There are also some good ebooks. Unfortunatly, you will find maybe something like 10-15 (is so much!) ebooks on pureland, only. I would like to see more than that.

BTTS has updated their website, so here is the Amitabha Sutra with Master Hua's comments:
