Sakyamuni Buddha, through 49 years of his entire lifetime, ran the
gamut of teaching from the Mahayana literature to the Hinayana
cultivation. Devotees and audiences had come from all directions.
Teacher and father manifest, he undertook to transform all living
beings, delivering the doctrine and showing them how to live life
with good sense and dignity.
The first text assembled was the simple and undecorated Agamas
detailing life in India at the time with honest descriptions of how to
emulate the Buddha in practice and what the realm of samadhi prajna
is. The renowned 12 nidanas, 37 conditions leading to bodhi, and the
precepts and discipline are hereby contained and discussed in depth.
The much translated and revered Agamas are deemed the point of
eventual return for everything.
Further, there is a range of Mahayana sutras and texts facilitating the
gifted, living beings with sharp root, including Mahaprajnaparamita
Sutra, Sandhinirmocana Sutra, Avatamsaka Sutra, Lotus Sutra, Sutra
of Vimalakirti, and many others.
