Definition Of:

Lotus Sutra

Buddhism Dictionary
The Lotus Sutra is probably the most important text of Mahayana Buddhism. It describes a lecture the Buddha gave and the ideas and thoughts. He discusses all the things that differentiate Mahayana Buddhism from Theravada , such as the idea of a bodhisattva , in particular the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara , the merit of the people who venerate the Lotus Sutra, and the key to nirvana  and Buddhahood.
