The Vimalakirti Sutra is one of the few Mahayana Sutras whose central figure is not the Buddha but a layman, Vimalakirti, who, in his understanding and practice, epitomizes the ideal lay believer. It is a sutra held in particular importance in the Zen or Chan sects and is one of the earliest sutras to include a female as a heroine and teacher. We will be studying and using both the Burton Watson and Robert Thurman translations. Class fees; eight class meetings:
