An Introduction to the Pure Land Sutras

by Ratnaguna (2017)

First in a series of talks given on the Great Faith, Great Wisdom retreat at Adhisthana led by Ratnaguna in October 2017.

Amitabha’s pure buddha-field Sukhavati is a vast ‘illumined image’, an imaginative evocation of higher states of consciousness and awakening, and the beings who inhabit this land are irreversible from awakening - they all possess great faith and great wisdom. Ratnaguna guides us in an imaginative journey into this realm in this series of talks from the retreat.

An Introduction to the Pure Land Sutras?- Ratnaguna??

A brief introduction to the three Pure Land sutras of Sukhavati. Ratnaguna goes into the nature of Mahayana Sutras and talks about them as performative, rather than informative, texts.

This talk is part of the series Great Faith, Great Wisdom Retreat - Adhisthana 2017.
