FQ17 Buddhism Week 4

This week, we will examine what it means to listen + why we have an overwhelming need to express — we will a look at the sutra on the White Lotus of the Sublime Dharma, or the Lotus Sutra, especially on the universal door and five voices. This sutra is one of the key sutras in Mahayana Buddhism, and the basis on which the Chinese and Japanese schools Tiantai, Tendai, Cheontae, and Nichiren was established.

We will look at one primary text:

You may find Chapter 25: The Universal Door of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva of the Lotus Sutra herehttp://www.fodian.net/world/0262_25.html —
