The Diamond Sutra is one of the most important sutras in Mahayana Buddhism. It is so valuable
to lay practitioners because it gives profound and yet practical advice for conducting your daily
life and also for helping others. This mobile application allows you to read the Diamond Sutra in
a convenient and accessible form. The Diamond Sutra App includes an English translation by
Venerable Yifa and others of Fo Guang Shan and the original Chinese text translated from the
Sanskrit by Kumarajiva. A glossary is included as well to explain technical Buddhist terms,
especially those of Indian origin.
The Diamond Sutra can be understood at many different levels, from the simplest, intuitive
understandings to the paradoxical and profound. The mobile app allows you to carry this
amazing sutra with you on your person and refer to it any time that you have a few minutes for
reflection. The app is available in both iOS and Android versions. We hope that the wisdom of
the Diamond Sutra can be useful to you in your everyday life and that you can pass on some of
that wisdom to others.
