In spite of the fact that the Lotus Sutra is most central to our Order, there is no one publication that provides a succinct and easy-to-understand introduction into the magnificent universe of truth that resides within that Sutra.
Through the Seven Parables in a creative cartoon rendition, the reader is introduced to central ideas of the Sutra.
Moreover, an overview of the Lotus Sutra and understandings of the function of its parables are provided.
