2 Surangama Sutra is a sutra in Mahayana Buddhism. Especially it has been influentian in Chinese Chan Buddhist school. 3 Nagarjuna is one of the most important Buddhist philosophers, who lived between the second and third century. He is revered as a founder and exponent of Madhyamaka philosophy that centers on sunyata (emptiness) doctrine to achieve liberation from suffering. 4 Yun defines it as a correct view of reality, that is, mutual interdependence and ultimate empty nature (2002). 5 Yun explains that it refers to a correct perception that our bodies will eventually decay and disappear and that our emotions and thoughts are temporal and impermanent (2002). 6 Rubin explains that it means speaking trustfully, sincerely, and compassionately (2003). 7 It refers to refraining from needless killing, stealing, and sexual misconduct (Rubin 2003). 8 It means living a reasonable economic life, an altruistic life, and a harmonious communal life (Yun 2002). 9 It means correct diligence in developing wholesomeness that has not yet risen, increasing wholesomeness that has already arisen, and preventing unwholesomeness from arising (Yun 2002). 10 It signifies constant awareness of phenomena that are happening at present and careful recollection of phenomena that occurred in the past (Rubin 2003). 11 It refers to spiritual concentration and mental tranquility achieved through the act of meditation to recall the actions and thoughts in the past, perceive the dynamics of mind at present and cultivate goodwill and compassion (Rubin 2003).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
