The Diamond Sutra

From The Sannyas Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


The Sanskrit title of The Diamond Sutra translates as "the perfection of wisdom which cuts like a thunderbolt." It is a record of the sayings of Gautam the Buddha as recalled by his chief disciple, Ananda. Osho credits Buddha with having contributed a non-repressive and non-ideological religiousness, rather than a religion. And in these discourses he gently prises the essence of Buddha's message from the confines of the formal words.
