Highest Sutra

...to the Mahayana Saddharmapundarika Sutra. This sutra is supposed to have highest teaching of Buddha as well as the Avatamsaka Sutra. 

[DC comment: Of course at other times other sutras are said to be the highest such as the Heart Sutra. Bodhidarma is said to have brought only the Lankavatara Sutra with him from India. But the Theravada people wouldn't agree as they don't recognize any Mahayana Sutras.] --------------------------------------------------  Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture on the Meal Chant - 68-01-11B as found on shunryusuzuki.com.
