「金剛菩提海，什麼叫金剛？什麼叫菩提海？金剛是不會壞的，菩提海是個覺海。覺海，這是個譬喻，譬喻像一個海，其實比海更大，比海更深，這種覺性是沒有邊際的，是不可思議的。所以我們現在人人都是修行這個金剛法，修行這個不壞的法，把我們心也變成金剛那麼光明，把我們的心修得像金剛那麼堅固，把我們這個身修得好像金剛那樣不壞。」 ──宣公上人 Vajra Bodhi Sea (VBS) is a Monthly Journal of Orthodox Buddhism. The first issue was published in April 1970. The Venerable Master Hua says, "We must return to our origin and go back to the sea of Bodhi. That’s why we publish a magazine called 'Vajra Bodhi Sea.' " Thus the first English-only issue of “Vajra Bodhi Sea” was printed by Gold Mountain Dhyana Monastery. After the City of 10,000 Buddhas was acquired, the magazine became a bilingual (English and Chinese) publication, its Chinese name being “The Monthly Journal of the City of 10,000 Buddhas.” In May 1992, the magazine adopted a new bilingual format with English and Chinese side by side.
