Tulane Law Review
The Lotus Sutra reveals that everyone has the potential for unlimited spiritual growth and each of us should aspire to be a bodhisattva; one who assists others on the road to enlightenment. Applying ancient Buddhist tenets to the law school classroom, the Lotus Sutra exhorts professors to challenge and befriend their students through the use of “expedient means” inspired by Buddhist thought. The poetic beauty and idealism of the Lotus Sutra transcend denominational differences to inspire the way we conceptualize legal education and the professorial mission.
