    Having read a few Sutras now, finding inconsistency, and not sure how to find the more advanced ones?

    So looking for Sutras like the Laṅkāvatāra Sūtra, which found fascinating, and inline with what i already knew of Buddha....

    What else would you recommend as enlightening, and profoundly deep? :innocent:

    Kalama Sutta. Many have to have the Brahmavihara pointed out to them where they occur in it, as it is packed with all sorts of goodies.

    I am not familiar with many of the later Mahayana sutras, but here is a compiliation of excellent early suttas you may be interested in reading. On that page, click on the link next to the subject you're interested in and it should take you to details about the sutta; then click "en" for an English translation of it).

    Heart sutra, but don't just read it.

    Isn't this sort of like asking which luscious strawberry is the tastiest? :D Respectfully, of course...
