Lecture no. 16 from the course: Sacred Texts of the World
Taught by Professor Grant Hardy | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
The Mahayana Sutras are those of the East Asian tradition. Study the Mahayana conceptions of the perfection of wisdom and the nature of emptiness, non-duality, and no-self. Observe how these notions were expressed through the renowned Lotus Sutra, Diamond Sutra, and Heart Sutra, and how the texts were venerated as sacred objects.
