REJOICE! Dedicating the Merit from The Perfection of Wisdom for All


On June 18, we had a heartwarming online celebration of the completion of our crowdfunding campaign to sponsor the translation into English of one of the lengthiest texts in the Tibetan Kangyur. This event to dedicate the merit from this campaign was held on the birthday of 84000’s founding chair, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche. Rinpoche’s presence was a highlight, and in this short video Rinpoche shares his thoughts around the oddities of birthday celebrations and expresses his gratitude and appreciation to everyone involved in making the profound teachings of Prajñāpāramitā accessible to the world.

“But wisdom is not intelligence. Wisdom is much more… beyond any of the things that we value. One can be smart, one can be intelligent, one can be educated, but it does not necessarily mean that we have wisdom, and where else is the wisdom of the Buddha taught in its most complete form, but in the Prajñāpāramitā.”
