New Publication: The Aspiration Prayer from “Destroyer of the Great Trichiliocosm”
84000 IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE ITS NEWEST PUBLICATION:
This short text contains a set of verses spoken by the Buddha as he put an end to the epidemic of Vaiśālī, extracted from one of the two main accounts of that episode. The verses call for well-being, especially by invoking the qualities of the Three Jewels and a range of realized beings and eminent gods. The text comprises two passages from the parent work, and of these the first and longest corresponds closely to a well-known Pali text, the Ratana-sutta, widely recited for protection and blessings.
