Global Impact

It’s not just the heritage of one tradition, one civilization or one nation – it’s the heritage of the world. The Kangyur and Tengyur will really contribute to the happiness, peace and freedom of all mankind.

Our Global Impact

84000’s twin goals are: Translation and Global Access.

Besides translating the words of the Buddha, we need to build and maintain a user-friendly and technologically robust mass publication platform (our online Reading Room) that will allow everyone in the world to have easy access to these texts.

The figures below provide an overview of the global impact we have created together with your generous support. Your continued support will provide global access to the words of the Buddha.

2,500 per week

We are thrilled to welcome visitors from around the world to our website 2,500 times per week. Given that the 56 sūtras in our online Reading Room are downloadable in three formats, we hope many more are reading these sūtras offline.

242 countries

84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha has been accessed in 242 countries and regions around the world!

6,030 spent over 10 mins on the site

It is so encouraging to see that visitors are spending longer durations on our site than ever before, with over 6,000 people spending a minimum of ten minutes on our site and 1,378 spending well over half an hour. The functions available in our state-of-the-art online Reading Room offer readers the most intuitive and supportive experience in which to study the sūtras.
