After the passing of the historical Buddha more than 2500 years ago, His teachings were codified in theTripitaka, or three "baskets": sutras, commentaries and precepts. The Brahma Net Sutra is part of both the basket of sutras and the basket of precepts, and contains the Bodhisattvaprecepts, the highest moral code in Mahayana.

The Prajna Paramita Hrdaya Sutra is the core of The Mahaprajna Paramita Sutra in six hundred scrolls. Its teaching is the teaching of supramundane Voidness as the only true existence, the true Void being mysteriously concealed in the existing. Therefore, one might say the substance of this sutra is the Voidness of all dharmas; and non-obtaining is the purpose.

So I told myself the Dhammapada is one of the oldest books of Buddhist thought. I should read it. What I wanted was a nice simple readable version that I could dip into. I discovered that most translations are completely unreadable, some more than others. A few modern versions attempt to clarify the text. I may be the first person to notice the problem who was a writer and not a translator.

L’auteur démontre que si le Bouddhisme détient de belles théories, il est englué de concepts d’hommes qui se contredisent et ne répondent pas aux 3 questions clé de la vie: d'où venons-nous?

Nul ne vient au Père que par moi."

The Four Sublime States are the best possible relationship with the world and everyone in it.

The Buddha urged us to adopt these sublime states, making them our habitual state of mind with which to embrace the entire world.
