84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha aims to translate all of the Buddha’s words into modern languages, and make them available to everyone.
Sponsor A Sutra is an opportunity to support the translation of a major text. Some of the long, important sutras require a sizeable amount of funding to ensure the translation continues through to completion. Your support is needed for the successful translation of these texts.
How much does it cost to sponsor?
Sponsorship opportunities are now available in sections of:
• 100 pages (US$25,000)
• 150 pages (US$37,500)
• 200 pages (US$50,000) or more.
All donations are considered unrestricted contributions, enabling 84000 to carry out their goals of translation and global access efficiently and effectively. Please note that per sutra suggested donation amounts are approximations only, and the actual cost may be greater or lesser when the overall costs of translation, editorial work, publication, and project management are taken into account.
How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to cover the costs of translation, editorial work, publication, and project management. Please see “What It Takes To Produce A Page of Translation” to learn more about the many stages required for high quality translation.
Who can sponsor?
Anyone can make a sponsorship as an individual or family. Sponsorships can also be made in the name of a group (such as a company, sangha or temple), with the requirement that the group assigns a single contact person, and that one person will be designated as the sole recipient of any acknowledgement letters or gifts from 84000.
How will donors be acknowledged?
Donors will be recognized in the acknowledgements section of the text.
In appreciation of your generous support, all the names and the dedication messages will be offered for prayers during the Dzongsar Monlam prayer festivals held biennially in Bodhgaya, India.

Should write down the Tripitaka.
In the Dharma of the Buddha
There are 84000 teachings
Therefore, where there is a Tripitaka
There will be 84000 Buddhas.”
