The Sumati Sutra
as Discoursed by the Buddha

(Language: Chinese with pinyin, English) 

In The Sumati Sutra, the eight-year-old girl Sumati makes the vow to become a Buddha, and the Buddha prophesies that she will definitely become a Buddha in the future! She raises ten questions about how one should cultivate in life. The Buddha addresses each question with four specific methods of practice. The Buddha teaches this sutra for the sake of young people, to inspire women to be courageous and diligent, for the happiness and prosperity of all people, and for the right to life, equality, and liberation of all beings.

Les Agamas-sutras et le boudhism humaniste

(Language: French) 

The Agama Sutras are said to be the accounts of Buddha’s teaching during his lifetime. They tell us that the Buddha used Dharma to educate all sentient beings so that they could achieve liberation, and the Buddha himself gained enlightenment through Dharma as well.

The life of the Buddha in the human world and humanistic Buddhism in our present life mirror each other. We should follow these simple but profound principles of the Buddha and implement them in our daily lives to live comfortably and gain liberation.
