The Lotus Sūtra (Sanskrit: Saddharma Puṇḍarīka Sūtra, literally "Sūtra on the White Lotus of the Sublime Dharma") is a Mahayana sutra that is one of the most influential texts within East Asian Buddhism. According to Paul Williams, "For many East Asian Buddhists since early times the Lotus Sutra contains the final teaching of the Buddha, complete and sufficient for salvation. The Lotus Sutra is the core text of the Tiantai, Tendai, Cheontae, and Nichiren schools.

The Flower Adornment Sutra (Avatamsaka Sutra) is known as the 'King of Kings' of all Buddhist sutras because of its profundity and great length. This sutra contains the most complete explanation of the Buddha's state of realization and the Bodhisattva's quest for awakening. It is said: Unless you read the Avatamsaka Sutra, you will not know of the Buddha's true blessings and honor. The Avatamsaka Sutra is the Buddha's greatest store of treasures. In forty chapters the sutra conveys a vast range of Buddhist teachings.

The Flower Garland Sutra is an example of a single sutra made up of other sutras, many of which, particularly the Gandavyuha Sutra still circulate as separate texts. Tibetan Buddhism has a unique and special class of texts called terma (Tibetan: gTer-ma). The Śālistamba Sūtra is an early Buddhist text that shows a few unique features which indicate a turn to the early Mahayana. It thus has been considered as one of the first Mahayana sutras.

15 Translator s Introduction Lotus Sutra does not correspond to anything in. .It has been taken to be a translation from a Sanskrit Amitārtha Sutra, which has been lost.

15 Translator s Introduction Lotus Sutra does not correspond to anything in Chinese or Japanese. The full title in Chinese is 妙 法 蓮 華 経, pronounced Miaofa-lian-hua jing, and Myō-hō-renge-kyō in Japanese. Literally these characters mean wonderful Dharma lotus flower sutra. Its own short title, Dharma Flower Sutra, or even Dharma Flowering Sutra, would thus be more appropriate than Lotus Sutra for the short title of this text, except, of course, for the fact that it is already well known as the Lotus Sutra. There may have been an earlier translation, also now lost.

The Wonderful Dharma Lotus Flower Sutra, more commonly known in English as the Lotus Sutra (Sanskrit: Saddharma-pundarika-sutra), is one of the major Buddhist texts of East Asia. It was spoken in the last period of Shakyamuni Buddha s life, proclaiming the ultimate principles of the Dharma, which unites all previous teachings into one. With many parables e.g. those of the burning house, the lost son, and the rain the Buddha teaches that all beings can become fully enlightened and that this achievement, and not that of becoming Shravakas or Pratyekabuddhas, has always been the ultimate intent of his teaching. This Sutra also includes separate chapters on several important bodhisattvas within the Mahayana tradition, such as Avalokiteshvara (Guan Shi Yin) and Samantabhadra (Pu Xian).

There are many other translations in English of the Lotus Sutra. The uniqueness of this sixteen volume series is that all twenty-eight chapters include extensive commentary by the late Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua, whose accessible explanations show this ancient text s meaning as instruction for practice on the spiritual path in the modern world.

In Chapter 2, Expedient Devices, the Buddha explains how there is just one teaching for Buddhahood. All other teachings or vehicles - the Storehouse Teaching, the Penetrating Teaching, the Separate Teaching - are provisional expedient teachings. They merely open the provisional and reveal the real.

The English translation of this Sutra and the commentary of Master Hua was done by the Buddhist Text Translation Society (BTTS). The translation process of the Society is modeled after the translation assemblies of earlier times and publishes work only after it has passed through four committees for primary translation, revision, editing, and certification. The leaders of these committees are bhikshus (monks) and bhikshunis (nuns) who have devoted their lives to the study and practice of the Buddha s teachings. For that reason, works published by the Society emphasize the practical applications of the Buddha s teachings. Chapter 2: Expedient Devices. Here the Buddha explains how there is just one teaching for Buddhahood. All other teachings and vehicles - the Storehouse Teaching, the Penetrating Teaching, the Separate Teaching - are provisional expedient teachings. They merely open the provisional and reveal the real." Other books in the series include Vol 1 Introduction by Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua, ISBN: 0-88139-433-5 (2001, 2nd ed).
