Benefits of the Sutras

Benefits of the Sutras

Rinpoche sent the following advice to a student, with three sutras (the Sutra of Golden Light, the Sanghata Sutra, and the Diamond Cutter Sutra).

Dear Sue,
Reading these holy texts is the happiest life for you; all your wishes will be fulfilled, including enlightenment. Also, sometimes please read the Heart Sutra. You can also print copies of the longlife sutra that I have just finished translating. Before printing it, read it mindfully. From time to time, you can also print the Arya Sanghata Sutra and the Diamond Cutter Sutra.

Please do this especially when you have financial difficulties with projects.

If you read the Golden Light Sutra, it becomes healing for all the sick people in the city where you are living. It stops violence, brings peace and happiness to the country, brings protection from others to the country, from harm, war, terrorist attacks, and so forth. It gives power to the leader of the country. It also directs your life towards enlightenment.


I also suggest that you write out the Diamond Cutter Sutra, the Arya Sanghata Sutra, or the Sutra of Golden Light, or one after another. This creates unbelievable merit.

With much love and prayers...
