We Chant & Discuss the Sutra of <<Origianl Vows of Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva>> .
<<Origianl Vows of Kṣitigarbha Bodhisattva>> is a Mahāyāna sūtra teaching about the bodhisattva Kṣitigarbha. The sutra tells of how Kṣitigarbha became a bodhisattva by making great vows to rescue other sentient beings and a description of how he displayed filial piety in his past lifetimes. The sutra also expounds at length the retributions of unwholesome karma, descriptions of Buddhist hells and the benefits of good merit both great and small.
