The Enlightenment of Bodhisattva Kuan-Yin [ English ][ Chinese, Big-5 ]
Enlightenment? Ever wonder what it is like? How to get there from here? In Shurangama Sutra, one of the most respected and followed sutras by practitioners in Mahayana Buddhism, Bodhisattva Kuan-Yin reported to Buddha Shakyamuni how he practiced and what he had experienced. Bodhisattva Manjushri pointed out in this sutra that Kuan-Yin's way of cultivating realization through hearing was best suited for the people of this world. With the explanation of I, the nature to hear, audial consciousness, hearing, and sound (corresponding to five degrees of deluded attachment), Dr. Shen led his audience through the spiritual journey of Kuan-Yin in his speech to the University of Hawaii on February 26, 1982.
