The Questions of an Old Lady Sutra - 2012

The Questions of an Old Lady Sutra, 18 May 2012 - Taipei, Taiwan

This sutra contains teachings given by the Buddha to a 120-year old woman. Upon meeting the Buddha, she asks him questions concerning the four stages of life, the aggregates, the elements and the faculties. The Buddha’s response to her questions forms a complete and profound teaching on shunyata or emptiness. After interpreting and elaborating on the sutra, Rinpoche gives instructions for directly applying shunyata in our own practice and leads two short meditation sessions.

The Noble Mahayana Sutra “The Questions of an Old Lady” is available in the 84000 Reading Room.
