The Bodhisattva Independence Contemplation
Compassionately, universally, crosses over and transforms beings with conditions.
The Entire World is Upset!!
Why? Their basic source of nutrition, Vajra Bodhi Sea, is late. The editors
of Vajra Bodhi Sea have received phone calls, telegrams, letters, and
threatening notes from people all over the world who have been unable to
eat or sleep, fretting over the arrival of the third issue.
Calm down. It's here. Aren't you holding it in your hands? There is alot of
work and few people to do it, so we are a bit late. Our advice to you,
don't eat this issue as fast, chew each bite 32 times and savour its
flavour. The food of Dharma is limitless. Invite your friends over for a
banquet. They bring their own minds and you supply the Vajra Bodhi Sea.
Vajra Bodhi Sea
In 1971, on the anniversary of the birth of the Sixth Patriarch, the Sino-American Buddhist Association will begin publication of a new translation of The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra with commentary. This work will be ready for distribution on the anniversary of the Sixth Patriarch's entry into nirvana in the same year.
The translation is being prepared by the Sangha members of the Sino-American Buddhist Association's Buddhist Text Translation Society in accord with the orthodox dharma as taught by the Buddha, and is an improvement over earlier translations in its completeness and accuracy. Moreover, this is the first time this Sutra will appear with a commentary to clarify the meaning. Study of this Sutra and commentary can bring one to a true understanding of the Buddhadharma.
Those who wish to subscribe for advance copies may do so beginning in July 1970 at the rate of $10 per book. After publication the books will be sold for $20 each. Write: Sutra Printing, S.A.B.A., 125 Waverly Place, San Francisco, California 94108.
