Mahayana Sutras... quick question
While I follow the Theravada tradition, I do love reading all Suttas/Sutras (currently reading a very good book: "The Heart Sutra Explained; Indian and Tibetan Commentaries" by Donald S. Lopez, Jr.).
From what I've read, the Mahayana Sutras appeared some 300-400 years after the death of The Buddha. Can someone point me in the direction of where I can read how these Sutras have been associated with The Buddha? I realize this is where some controversy exists, but I'm really just interested in reading how the Mahayana Sutras are connected with The Buddha himself. How they connect back to The Buddha, much the way the Pali Canon has been connected to him.
