1) "This sutra" changed to "the book" -- actually the text was probably written on palm leaves at the time and not in a book. Hope people don't think Suzuki's *book* had much to do with it. 2) I'm not certain why "in" was changed to "In" in the middle of a sentence. 3. Does "'Lankavatara Sutra"' mean it's it bold? 4.
