Ornament of the Sutras; Sutralamkara, mahayana-sutralankara, Ornament for the Mahayana Sutras by Maitreya [RY]

The Ornament of the Sutras is one of the Five Teachings of Maitreya. Thrangu Rinpoche explains: "The Ornament of Realization (Abhisamayalamkara) clarifies the Second Turning of the Wheel of Dharma. The next three teachings are general works given to clarify all of Buddha Shakyamuni's teachings. These are called the Ornament of the Sutras (Sutralamkara), Discerning the Middle and the Extremes, and Discerning Dharmas and Dharmata. The fifth work taught by Lord Maitreya truly establishes the Third Turning of the Wheel of Dharma. It is called the Uttaratantra". (EPK) The Light of Wisdom, Vol. 1, pgs. 222 & 223. (RY)
