Textbook: The Shurangama Sutra – A commentary by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua
When the Buddha was sixty-two, the Venerable Ananda, because he valued only erudition and neglected cultivation, was snared by Matangi's mantra from the ancient Brahma Heaven, and was on the verge of destroying the substance of his precepts. The Buddha first used the Shurangama Mantra to rescue the Venerable Ananda from the woman's artifice, and then spoke for him the Sutra of the Foremost Shurangama of the Great Buddha's Summit.
This is the sutra which activates our wisdom and reveals the principles. If we can take these principles and enlarge upon them, expanding their scope and making inferences from them, our wisdom will certainly becomes as vast as the sea.
This is a rare opportunity to join in the translation efforts of the Buddhist Text Translation Society.
