LOTUS SUTRA


LOTUS SUTRA
   probably the most important text of MAHYNA BUDDHISM. Its rich MYTHOLOGY and doctrine inspired the development of PURE LAND BUDDHISM and a variety of other BUDDHIST SECTS in China and Japan. It was translated into Chinese in the second century and stresses the omniscience and eternal power of the BUDDHA who draws all BEINGS to ENLIGHTENMENT.
