I have been chanting the True Buddha Sutra for over 3 years now and I can attest to the power of this sutra. This book will elucidate on passages from the sutra and give you wonderful insight on it's meanings. For example, Master Lu explains how "the key to realizing the Buddha jewel sambodhi is a quiescent mind". "No thought" or a quiescent mind is the key to the Buddha Jewel of Perfect Realization. He is telling us to put all thoughts to rest. Then he says, "that of realizing the Dharma Jewel is purity of body, speech, and mind." This is referring to the purification of our beings. When we hold a mudra, the body is engaged in a temporary purity for the duration of that moment. We must train ourselves to extend this temporary purity of the body, speech, and mind into all aspects of our daily lives: while we are exercising, standing, sitting, or lying down.
Om mani padme hum!
