The Lotus Sutra


The Lotus Sutra is Buddha’s most referred to teaching on “emptiness”, it is said to be a central concept and necessary part of enlightenment. It is professed that understanding and experiencing “emptiness” is something that can not be taught; it is said that one can not try to understand it with the mind.

This is the Lotus Sutra memorized, recited, and chanted by some western Buddhist monks. The lotus sutra is widely considered to be the most sacred teaching of the Buddha.
