Hearing the wisdom of the Buddha through translation will be a great contribution to world society, now and in future.
84000 publications are recognized as authoritative, accurate, accessible translations, and it is with great joy that we hear of teachers of the Buddhadharma teaching from the sūtras and using our publications as guide material for their audiences.
On occasion, 84000 has even been fortunate enough to receive words from contemporary teachers of the Buddhadharma that have been inspired from, or are in response to, the publication of a specific sūtra translation. As we receive these precious words of wisdom, we share them with you here, in addition to links for recent teachings given on sūtra texts that have already been translated and published by 84000.
We hope you find this compilation of contemporary teachings on the sūtras beneficial to your study and practice.
