Dear Dharma Drink Friends, Let's read the The Sutra of Queen Śrīmālā. This sutra is an important Mahayana scripture in that it teaches that all sentient beings have the potential to be enlightened. Also, this sutra sets the tone of a more egalitarian world with the queen as the protagonist, philosopher and teacher. This is a short Buddhist sutra so we will finish this in two session, second session on Oct 7th. Everyone must pre-read before participating. This book club is meant for us to read the sutra and help each other where we can. This is NOT a book club for us to expound. For deeper learning, you can seek out centers that are giving Dharma talks on this sutra. Book Title: The Sutra of Queen Śrīmālā of the Lion's Roar

Translated: Diana Y. Paul Finish reading this sutra During this session we will likely not finish the sutra. We'll likely meet for one more session to finish discussing the sutra. Per Description from University of Hawai'i's Press: "The Sutra of Queen Srīmālā is an important early Mahayana text. It is a unique development within the Buddhist tradition because of its egalitarian and generous view concerning women, portraying, on the one hand, the dignity and wisdom of a laywoman and her concern for all beings, and, on the other, the role of woman as philosopher and teacher. The major philosophical emphases of the text are the theories of the 'womb of the Buddha' and the One Vehicle." /|\ Eddie - - - Where to get the book - - -
