On top of page 17 of The Teaching of Buddha is a quote that sounds very much like the Four Great Vows; even allowing for the paraphrasing in this book. The source is given as the mahayana-jataka-cittabhumi-pariksa-sutra. Anyone seen an english translation of this work?
Or maybe someone knowing it could confirm or disprove this passage being in this sutra. It begins: "When Buddha decided to break from the worldly life, he made four great vows..."
Discuss and learn about the traditional Mahayana scriptures, without assuming that any one school ‘owns’ the only correct interpretation.
