Quotes from the Lotus Sutra, Vol. 3


"I am the World-Honored One,
Who cannot be surpassed.
To bring peace and security to all beings
I appear in the world.

And for the sake of this assembly
I teach the Dharma, pure as nectar.
The Dharma has one flavor—
Of liberation and nirvana.

With one wondrous voice
I fluently explain its meaning,
To bring about causes and conditions
For the Great Vehicle"

藥草喻品 第五


「我為世尊無能及者 ,安隱眾生故現於世,為大眾說甘露淨法,其法一味解脫涅槃;以一妙音演暢斯義,常為大乘而作因緣。」
