Sutras are Teachings personally taught by the Buddha. These include The Great Prajnaparamita Sutra (The Sutra on the Perfection of Transcendent Wisdom), The Lotus Sutra, and Avatamsaka Sutra (The Flower Garland Sutra, The Flower Adornment Sutra, or The Flower Ornament Scripture). Within The Great Prajnaparamita Sutra, the Buddha uses his profound wisdom to teach us about all phenomena in the world. For example, the difficulties of all lives originate from an improper and confounded understanding of reality. Our incorrect views frequently cause us to become distressed and feel a lot of sorrow. Therefore, studying the Buddha’s words is an important way to help us resolve hardships in our lives and attain happiness.
