I’ve been reading the Longer Sukhavativyuha Sutra for my English-speaking internet friends. This is the latest segment. It’s about 15 minutes long. Annnd, it’s a pretty exciting part of the Sutra– it’s got a lot of huuuuge numbers!
Peace in all these steps. Travelling to the Lotus Temple. I made some videos. Check ’em out!
Reading the Longer Sukhavativyuha (the Longer Sutra about the Pure Land of Amitabha) for you. This is part 2.
A post for the recollection of Infinite Light Buddha.
“The Longer Sukhāvatīvyūha Sūtra is one of the two Indian Mahayana sutras which describe the Pure Land of Amitabha.” –Wikipedia
Sometimes, when I look real close, I can see that aspects of Pure Land Buddhism are an evolution of the practice of Buddhānusmṛti (recollection of the Buddha).
Fire Lion Buddha gives no shits. He will scream in your face about things you will never understand. All of it true. Unrelenting, he doesn’t stop to get caught by the philosophers or the priests.
Thich Nhat Hanh said something interesting about Maitreya Buddha being not an individual, but a collective being.
Sharing the techniques from the Meditation Sutra– the Sutra on the Contemplation of Infinite Light Buddha. Enjoy!
