Overview

According to the Buddha, these sutras contain the method to understand his teachings, release ourselves from illusion, and enlighten.

In addition to the Heart, Diamond and Lotus sutras, we provide the traditional introduction to the Lotus Sutra, called the Sutra of Innumerable Meanings, as well as its traditional conclusion, called the Sutra of meditation on Samanthabhadra, for a total of five wonderful sutras. These sutras are to be read and meditated. Their wisdom might not always come clear to the mind on the first reading, but meditation of their meaning will reveal the true wisdom of the dharma. They cover subjects about the self and non-self, the dharma and non-dharma. They will reveal to you the way to understand all mysteries of existence.

Because there is nothing to be attained, the Bodhisattva relying on Prajna Paramita has no obstruction in his mind. Because there is no obstruction, he has no fear, and he passes far beyond confused imagination, and reaches ultimate nirvana.
- The Buddha, Heart Sutra

All composed things are like a dream, a phantom, a drop of dew, a flash of lightning. That is how to meditate on them, that is how to observe them.
- The Buddha, Diamond Sutra
