Overview

This short yet important sutra gives us a picture of the entire range of the
Buddha’s teachings, from the basic to the profound. With its repeated emphasis
on the importance of eliminating desire and greed, this sutra is excellent medicine
for our society, which is plagued by materialism and over consumption. This
was the first sutra transmitted from India to China and was brought by two
extraordinary Indian monks on a white horse around 67 C.E. This prompted
the emperor of China to establish the White Horse Monastery at Loyang.
Tripitaka Master Hua’s commentary gives clear and straight forward explanations
illustrating the principles of orthodox Buddhism.
