It is a guide to get you started; there are many more resources available, so this is just a jumping-off point for your research.

Ask Us for help if you need assistance in finding information about Buddhism.

These dharmas cannot be demonstrated;
Words, which are only signs, are quiescent in them.
Among the remaining kinds of living beings
None can understand them,
Except for the multitude of bodhisattvas,
Whose power of faith is firm.

~ from the Lotus Sutra
