Got one?

For the Pail Canon, there are sites like Access to Insight, is there such a thing for Mahayana sutras?

My understanding is the Mahayana canon is much vaster, but do people have a simple 'reading list' or similar they'd reccomend?

There is not one, but many. Perhaps too many...

Here are some links to some 'basic' outlines:

Guide to Mahayana Sutras

Sacred Texts: Mahayana Buddhism

Buddha Sūtras Mantras

Buddhist Scriptures in Multiple Languages

Plus a lot of others in the Mahāyāna forum, here: viewtopic.php?f=39&t=17

(1)Brahma Net sutra(Bodhisattva moral code)
(2)3 Pureland sutras
(3)The Lions roar of Queen Srimala Sutra(contains 10 Bodhisattva vows and Tathagatagarbha(Buddha nature) teachings.
(4)Mahaparinirvana sutra
(5)Lotus Sutra

(It doesnt have to be in this order I just like writing number lists:)
(Brahma Net and Queen Srimala sutras are very small,you could probley read Both of them 6 times in one day)

Peace and Love
