Continuing his talk on the Lotus Sutra

This sutra was not told by the Nirmanakaya or historical Buddha, but by the Sambhogakaya Buddha. According to this sutra, it was told a long, long time before Buddha. And Buddha, knowing that there was this kind of sutra before him, talked about the sutra which had been told by the Sambhogakaya Buddha. The sutra was attributed to Shakyamuni Buddha, but he told this sutra the way Vairocana Buddha told it a long, long time before.   ----------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture - 68-10-20 as found on Edited by DC  - Going through Suzuki lectures and posting anything that can stand on its own.
