More Information about the Diamond Sutra (Buddhist text)
"All conditioned phenomena
Are like a dream, an illusion, a bubble, a shadow,
Like dew or a flash of lightning;
Thus we shall perceive them."
The Diamond Sutra is a teaching pointing at the wisdom of understanding ultimate reality. Buddhism is rooted in cause and effect, and thus is ultimately very methodical in understanding suffering and how to alleviate it.
