 +[[Shurangama Sutra]]
 +
 +Full title: [[Sutra]] of the [[Foremost]] [[Shurangama]] at the [[Great]] [[Buddha]]'​s [[Summit]]
 +Concerning the [[Tathagata]]'​s Secret [[cause]] of [[Cultivation]],​ His [[Certification]] to
 +the Complete Meaning and All [[BodhiSattva]]s'​ [[Myriad]] [[practice]]s_.
 +
 +===== Commentary by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua =====
 +
 +The [[Shramana]] [[Venerable]] [[Tripitaka]] Master [[Hsuan Hua]] states: ​
 +"​[[People]] who [[study]] the [[Buddha Dharma]] should certainly investigate the
 +[[Shurangama Sutra]] and gain a thorough [[understand]]ing of it. The [[Shurangama]]
 +[[Sutra]] is for [[bringing forth]] [[Great Wisdom]]. If you want to have right
 +[[knowledge]] and [[Right View]]s and open [[Great Wisdom]], you should certainly
 +[[understand]] the [[Shurangama Sutra]]. The [[Shurangama Sutra]] breaks up the
 +[[deviant]] and reveals the [[Proper]]. It smashes all the [[Heavenly demon]]s and those
 +of [[externalist]] [[sect]]s and reveals the [[innate]] [[Human]] capacity for [[Right Knowledge]] ​
 +and [[Right View]]s. But when the [[Buddha Dharma]] is just about to [[become]]
 +[[extinct]],​ the very first [[Sutra]] to vanish will be the [[Shurangama Sutra]]. If
 +we wish to [[protect]] and maintain the [[Proper Dharma]], we should investigate the
 +[[Shurangama Sutra]], come to [[understand]] the [[Shurangama Sutra]], and [[protect]]
 +the [[Shurangama Sutra]]. When the [[Buddha Dharma]] is about to [[become]] [[extinct]],​
 +weird [[demon]]s and strange [[ghost]]s will come into the [[World]], [[people]] with
 +[[deviant knowledge]] and [[deviant view]]s. They will be wise to the [[way]]s of the
 +[[World]] and will be endowed with [[power]]s of [[debate]] and keen [[intelligence]]. They
 +will argue that the [[Shurangama Sutra]] is [[spurious]] -- in[[authentic]] -- and will
 +tell [[people]] not to [[believe]] it.
 +
 +"Why will they say the [[Shurangama Sutra]] is [[spurious]]?​
 +
 +"It is because the [[Shurangama Sutra]] tells about all their [[fault]]s. It
 +discusses their kinds of [[deviant knowledge]] and [[deviant view]]s. If the
 +[[Shurangama Sutra]] remains in the [[World]], no one will [[believe]] their [[deviant]]
 +[[views]]. If there is no [[Shurangama Sutra]], then their [[deviant knowledge]] and
 +[[deviant view]]s will succeed in [[confusing]] [[people]]. Therefore, they argue that
 +the [[Shurangama Sutra]] is [[spurious]]. This is the appearance of [[demon king]]s. ​
 +Those who [[study]] the [[Buddha Dharma]] should be particularly attentive to
 +this point. They should be particularly careful not to be influenced by the
 +[[deviant knowledge]] and [[deviant view]]s of those [[demon king]]s."​ ([[SS II]] 161-162)
 +
 +"In this, the [[Dharma Ending Age]], the [[Dharma]] will disappear. The first [[Sutra]]
 +to disappear will be the [[Shurangama Sutra]]. That is why those who [[study]] the
 +[[Buddha Dharma]] should first investigate the [[Shurangama Sutra]]. As long as
 +someone [[understand]]s this [[Sutra]], the [[Buddha Dharma]] will not [[become]] [[extinct]]. ​
 +As long as there is someone who can [[recite]] the [[Shurangama Mantra]] (which is part
 +of the [[Sutra]]), the [[demon king]]s, the [[Heavenly demon]]s and followers of
 +[[externalist]] teachings will not dare to come into the [[World]] to play their
 +tricks and to make trouble. The [[Shurangama Mantra]] is the most [[miraculous]]
 +[[Mantra]] for helping the [[World]]. The [[Shurangama Sutra]] is the primary [[Sutra]]
 +which [[protect]]s and supports the [[Orthodox Dharma]]."​ ([[BRF]] 18)
