  • 100 pages (US$25,000)
  • 150 pages (US$37,500)
  • 200 pages (US$50,000) or more.

General Information:

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.

How will the funds be used?
The funds will be used to support the translation of your sponsored text, including the various stages of research, consultation, translation and editorial work. Any excess of funds will be used to support the publication of the text.

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 biennually in Bodhgaya, India.

84000 Circle


“Every single letter of the Dharma
Equals an image of the Buddha:
Therefore a wise person
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.”
