||The Flower Ornament Scripture or Avatamsaka Sutra was composed in India
some 1800 years ago. It present a thorough typology of psychological disturbances and a
set of procedures that might be used to overcome them and thus find the peace which passes
all understanding. In English translation it comprises 1800 pages and it is interesting to
speculate upon what caused the authors to write it.
