The Ullambana Sutra
The Ullambana Sutra is a Mahayana sutra concerning filial piety. It records an event in which Maudgalyayana finds that his mother has been reborn in the preta realm, and the way he is able to save her with the assistance of the Buddha and the blessing of the Sangha. Filial piety is not only an Asian cultural tradition; its spirit is very much related to supreme Bodhicitta, which is indispensable for attaining enlightenment and being able to truly benefit other beings. Practicing filial piety is crucial to the ability to generate and stabilize Bodhicitta.
