The little Lankavatara might mean entering Lanka suggesting that the doctrines of this scripture are possibly consistent with earlier Buddhism preserved in the Pali language. Suzuki`s pioneer translation of the Lankavatara Sutra was based on the sanskrit text edited by Bunyu Nanjo. It is a remarkable coverage of Mahayana Buddhist topics especially of the type often associated with the Yogacara school of Buddhism yet is of interest to everyone who desires an introduction to Mahayana Buddhism. Here, the world is like a mirage. The mind has poured out its impression of externals. To get liberated one must stop this outpouring. An advanced individual understands and comes to realize the self-nature of the world which is really so.
