Lankavatara Sutra

Lankavatara Sutra

Postby WuMing » Fri Apr 26, 2013 9:55 pm

I read Red Pine's translation of the Lankavatara Sutra, which I enjoy very much. In the bibliography he mentions another English translation of the Lankavatara Sutra done by Tokiwa Gishin: Lankavatara Sutra: A Jewel Scripture of Mahayana Thought and Practice

Does anybody have access to this translation?
今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Our life is very simple, very direct, very beautiful, very vast and very terrifying, but it is not at all convenient.
