Earth Store Sutra In English

Postby teatimes.me » Sat May 05, 2012 1:15 pm

I have been reciting Earth Store Sutra in Chinese, I am wondering if anybody has experience reciting in English? The reason is that I found it very effective in reducing bad karma from the past, and I want to introduce this approach to English speakers. Any success stories? Which translation version did you recite? Thanks.

English or any language will produce merit, if the motive is good. I use the Buddhist Text Translation Society versions (there are two).

See this old thread - viewtopic.php?f=77&t=1876
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.
