Encouraged by the overwhelmingly postive response my
first post in the Psychology, Philosophy and Metaphysics Discussion Forum generated, I decided it would be a great idea to even go ahead and start my own thread.

I suspect many here may find this and interesting topic, but may not be sure how to view the material. So, on that basis, just a few words about the text.

What follows is taken from a pretty darned old Buddhist sutra. Now, sutra is just sanskrit for thread which, of course is different than tantra which is sanskrit for fabric. Another distinction between these two terms is that traditionally sutra teachings are approved for the general public at large, while the tantras were rather restriced in nature, and approved only for transmission to initiates from a qualified lineage holder.

What follows is drawn from the sutra class of teachings. I hope you find it an interesting read and that some lively discussion may result.
