Nirvana Sutra

image

The Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra (commonly known as the Nirvana Sutra, for short) is one of the most profound, inspiring and important of all the Buddha's Mahayana sutras. Tradition and the sutra itself have it that this scripture represents the final set of Mahayana teachings delivered by the Buddha on the last day and night of his life upon earth. And yet despite being greatly revered and strongly influential in the East, it is little known, and even less well studied, in the West. This website is devoted to an appreciation of this unique scripture - both for those who wish to study the background of the text from a scholarly point of view, but more particularly for those who wish to practise the teachings of the Mahaparinirvana Sutra from a basis of faith and meditative experience.


Nirvana Sutra :: Appreciation of the "Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra"
(English version)
This website is dedicated with enormous gratitude and admiration to the memory of Kosho Yamamoto, the first man ever to earn the inestimable merit of translating the Mahayana Mahaparinirvana Sutra into English.

Deutsch: Kurz gesagt handelt es sich beim "Nirvana Sutra" um die letzte Unterweisung Buddhas.

Dies ist die erstmalige deutsche Übersetzung des tibetanischen Mahaparinirvana-Sutras - des letzten Mahayana-Sutras des Buddha. Die ursprüngliche englischsprachige Übersetzung wurde 2004 vom Buddhisten-Gelehrten Stephen Hodge gemacht, und die hiesige deutsche Version derselben wurde vom englischen Mahaparinirvana-Sutra Forscher und Anhänger Dr. Tony Page (London) verfasst.
