Dharma Source

Someone contacted me after yesterday’s post about The Lotus Sutra, asking where I’d found my copy - an excellent Chinese translation of the original Sanskrit. There’s a sangha in Taiwan that distributes these books free of charge. You can request up to five texts, which they will send via air mail and at their cost. Go here to make your request:
Please remember that these are dharma texts, and should be treated kindly. If you find yourself for whatever reason wanting to give them away, donating them to your local library is a good place to start. Or give them to a friend who wants to study the dharma. Or a local temple. Don’t throw the texts away. This is essential respect for what is considered sacred Buddhist scripture.
