Perfection of Wisdom in 25,000 Lines

Description:
The Perfection of Wisdom in 25,000 Lines is the second longest of the six ‘mother’ Prajñāpāramitā texts (yum drug). It comprises three entire volumes of the Kangyur (vols. 26-28) and is divided into 76 chapters relating dialogues between the Buddha and senior disciples, notably Śāriputra, Subhūti and Ānanda.With some exceptions, the text parallels the structure of the other Perfection of Wisdom sūtras, especially the Prajñāpāramitā in 10,000 Lines, yet it has traditionally been regarded as more influential, analyzing the bodhisattvas’ transcendent perfections in considerably greater detail, and showing how bodhisattvas should practise them without ever considering either their practice, or any other phenomena whatsoever, as truly existing.An original Sanskrit version found in Gilgit exists, as well as four distinct Chinese translations. There is also an important recast Sanskrit manuscript, possibly of 5th century origin, which divides the text according to the eight sections of Asaṅga-Maitreya’s famous treatise, the Abhisamayālaṃkāra. The Tibetan text dates from the 9th century. There are several important commentaries on the text in the Tengyur, by Haribhadra, Smṛtijñānakīrti, Vimuktasena and others.

Description:
Teaching the Unfathomable Secrets of the Tathāgatas is a fascinating third turning mahayāna sūtra extracted from the larger Ratnakūṭa sūtra that explores a diversity of topics across 24 chapters and an epilogue.Both the Buddha and Vajrapāṇi teach, discussing the secrets of the body, speech, and mind of the bodhisattvas and the buddhas, nonduality, the relationship of the nature of mind to the qualities of buddhas and bodhisattvas, and other subjects. It follows a consistently nondual perspective — identifying that while an awakened being may seem to be engaged in a conceptual or dualistic action, they never leave the scope of nonconceptual wisdom. It reveals the extraordinary freedom that awakened beings have in their acting in the world.No. of pages: 205 pages

Sponsored by: Anonymous

Click here for more information

Description:
The King of Samādhis Sūtra is a mahāyāna sūtra of great importance, particularly as a much quoted source of authority—in both Indian and Tibetan traditions—for a range of aspects of Buddhist practice and philosophical views. The term samādhi is used throughout the text with a very wide range of meanings, including the experience of emptiness, all sorts of other practices for bodhisattvas, and as a reference to the text itself. The awakening obtained by recognizing the empty and illusory nature of all phenomena, and its merits and powers, is perhaps the core theme, but the text also describes the six perfections, aspects of discipline and ethics, the body of the Buddha, reflections on the qualities of the Buddha, other kinds of samādhi, and definitions for a large number of terms describing their merits and power.For its exposition of emptiness, it was considered authoritative by the Madhyamaka philosophical tradition and is quoted extensively by Candrakīrti, Śāntideva, Śāntarakṣita, Kamalaśīla, Prajñākaramati, and others.No. of pages: 339 pages

Sponsored by: Anonymous

Description:
The sūtra describes a previous life of Śākyamuni Buddha when he was a court priest to a king. He makes his prayer to become a buddha and causes the king, his princes, his own sons and pupils, and others, to also take the same vow. This is revealed to be the major event that is the origin of buddhas and bodhisattvas such as Amitābha, Akṣobhya, Avalokiteśvara, Mañjuśrī, and the thousand buddhas of our eon.The “white lotus of compassion” in the title refers to Śākyamuni himself, emphasizing his superiority over all other buddhas, like a fragrant, healing white lotus among a bed of ordinary flowers. He chose to be reborn in an impure realm during the degenerate times. Because of this courageous vow of great compassion, Śākyamuni is considered one of the greatest buddhas.No. of pages: 337 pages

We would like to thank the 108 Founding Sponsors who so generously provided the seed funding to help 84000 get started with its task of translating the words of the Buddha. Each of these sponsors gave or pledged to give between $50,000-$250,000 to help us begin our journey. In addition to providing the funding for the initial rounds of translations, the funds are being used or have been used to: create the infrastructure for reviewing, editing, and pre-publication work; develop the tools and resources necessary for translation work; train translators and editors; and offset both the costs of the initial planning, and the current and ongoing administrative and operating costs.

With the vision and generosity of these Founding Sponsors, 84000 has been able to successfully launch and significantly progress with the immense task of translating the words of the Buddha. We offer our heartfelt thanks to all our Founding Sponsors for enabling us to safeguard this invaluable world heritage, and making it available for generations to come.

Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, chairperson of 84000, has written a message addressed to all 108 Founding Sponsors. Click here to view Rinpoche’s message.
