Shurangama Sutra Chapter 1 English Spoken Audio

Shurangama Sutra Chapter 1 English Spoken Audio

Published on Sep 2, 2015
In the Shurangama Sutra, the Buddha describes the nature of reality and mind consciousness by stripping Ananda of his attachment to the illusory body and mind before revealing the One Mind. To teach how this One Mind can be realized he asked twenty-five Bodhisattvas to describe the different methods by which each had attained Enlightenment.

Enlightenment in Mahayana Buddhism consists of transmuting the mind into the Great Mirror Wisdom. The Shurangama Sutra points directly at the Mind which when stirred by the first thought creates the basic illusion of an ego and splits the Whole into subject and object.

This recording of The Shurangama Sutra: Chapter 1 describes the setting of the discourse, who is in attendance and outlines that Ananda has been practicing without Cultivation; riding on Buddha's coattails because they are cousins. He begins by asking Ananda simple questions about where the mind is located and deconstructing each of his answers in order to reveal the One Mind.
