Your statement

***The Lotus Sutra is a teaching of absolute equality - it affirms that all people, regardless of station, gender or background, are potentially Buddhas.***

Actually the Lotus Sutra is quite clear that women cannot become Buddhas. The one woman who ever made it first became a man in a spontaneous transformation, and only then was allowed to become a Buddha. This is all in the Lotus Sutra.

So what gives.

Did you read the Lotus Sutra so long ago that you forget.

Or are you breaking the commandment about honesty.

Please respond.

Richard
