Lotus Sutra

The teaching of the Lotus Sutra expound on the ultimate goal of Mahayana Buddhism which is for all sentient beings to reach their own enlightenment, be relieved from their suffering, desires and the cycles of rebirth and be enabled to experience their own personal and genuine happiness, through a life of compassion, empathy dignity and peace. Viewed as the most important Mahayana Buddhism text, the Lotus Sutra embraces Indian Buddhist philosophy as interpreted, created and disseminated by Shakyamuni, the historical Buddha. In Chapter 25 (the Universal Door of Guanshi Yin Bodhisattva) the Buddha says to Guanyin (who at that time was a male) “if any of the limitless hundreds of thousands … of living beings who are undergoing all kinds of suffering hear of Guanshiyin Bodhisattva and recite his name single-mindedly, Guanshiyin Bodhisattva will immediately hear their voices and rescue them.”
