When reading, reciting, listening to, and thinking about the profound Sutra of Golden Light, all kinds of questions arise. Perhaps there are names you don’t recognize or want to know more about. Here is the place to ask about the Tathagata Ratnashikhin, the Bodhisattva Ruchiraketu, or the Noble Goddess Bodhisattvasamucchaya.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that the names of the buddhas in the four directions aren’t the same as you are used to. Are there different directional buddhas in different Buddhist traditions?
You may have questions about the history of the text itself. Why has this sutra been so important, so highly respected, for centuries? Is there more than one version?
All questions and answers will be posted here.
Of course, this glorious sutra encompasses Buddhist practice, from temporal activities to profound realization, with repeated emphasis and direct teaching of dependent arising, but please keep questions focused on the Sutra of Golden Light rather than on Buddhism in general – for general questions about Buddhism in general go to fpmt.org/education/buddhism-faq/
You must recognize that your real enemy, the thief who steals your happiness, is the inner thief, the one inside your mind – the one you have cherished since beginningless time. Therefore, make the strong determination to throw him out and never to let him back in.
