Teachings on Sūtra | Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche speaks on The Perfection of Wisdom, to celebrate Saga Dawa Düchen and the availability of the Buddha’s words. Together we celebrates a historic milestone in the translation of the Kangyur, the publication of two texts from The Perfection of Wisdom section of the Kangyur: The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom, the Blessed Mother and The Perfection of Wisdom in Eighteen Thousand Lines. With the latter’s sheer length, we will also be hitting a major milestone in the publication of the Kangyur in English.
The Teachings on Sūtra webinar series draws from our translated collection of the Tibetan Buddhist canon and explores key themes from the sutras. Each event brings in teachers of the Buddhadharma to speak about the theme with reference to specific texts in the Kangyur, and takes place on what are considered to be the four most auspicious days of the Buddhist calendar: Celebration of the Buddha’s Miracles (Chötrul Düchen), Celebration of the Buddha’s Birth, Awakening, and Parinirvana (Saga Dawa), Celebration of the Buddha’s Teachings (Chökor Düchen), and Celebration of the Buddha’s Return from the Realms of the Gods (Lhabab Düchen).
