The Lankavatara Sutra

Online retreat with the Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi

Saturday, February 24 8AM PT

The Lankavatara Sutra is one of the most important early Mahayana Buddhist texts and was influential in the formation of several later schools of Buddhism in Tibet, China and Japan.  The primacy of consciousness is one important concept from this sutra, which informed the  “mind-only” school of Yogachara / Chittamatra. Additional key teachings from this sutra include Buddha Nature (Tathagatagarbha Doctrine), the Three Bodies of the Buddha (Trikaya Doctrine), Non-self (Anatman), and Emptiness (Sunyata).
