You've heard of the Lotus Sutra. Maybe you've tried to read it. Mystical stories. Polemics against other teachings. Rejoicing that the Buddha is about to preach the Lotus Sutra. Does he ever go ahead and do it? What do people get out of this scripture? Who finds it relevant? Dogen, the greatest figure in Japanese Zen, for one. Leighton explains. The whole worldview of Zen turns out to reflect this lotus.
