Dear Friends of the Dharma,
It was wonderful to share the experience of reciting the new translated Lotus Sutra with some of you recently. It is always a bit difficult to read a new version of a book we love, since we tend to become attached to our old favorites. But it is good for us to challenge ourselves with something new, and i think the modern version is quite wonderful. I deeply felt the constant repetition that this sutra is for bodhisattvas, for us readers, is important. We must never forget our vow to follow the bodhisattva way. Thank you to those that made such a huge effort to participate in this practice with me.
