The Avatamsaka Sutra

Come join us for a friendly introduction to the longest and most intimidating of sutras, the Avatamsaka Sutra.

Teacher: Zen Master Bon Hae (Judy Roitman)


Description: The Avatamsaka Sutra is at the heart of Mahayana Buddhism, and a major root of Zen teaching. It is also one of the most ornate, complex and mystical of texts, and the longest of the Mahayana sutras. For that reason, it can be challenging for us to read fully. Join Zen Master Bon Hae (Judy Roitman) for the opportunity to taste the vastness and depth of this sutra as we read excerpts together, and as she outlines its structure and discusses some of the major aspects that help form our Kwan Um teaching.

About the teacher: Judy Roitman began practicing Zen with Zen Master Seung Sahn in 1976. One of the founders of the Kansas Zen Center in 1978, she received inka (full authorization to teach) from Zen Master Seung Sahn in 1998 and transmission from Zen Master Dae Kwang in April 2013. She is currently the guiding teacher of the Kansas Zen Center.
