The First 84000 Sutra Resounding

Found In Translation: An 84000 Sutra Resounding

On May 17, 2012, fifty people came together in the quiet oasis of a Quaker meeting room in downtown Washington DC to read newly translated sutras from 84000′s reading room and other sutras.

Ven. Khenpo Kalsang Gyaltsen and Rev. Dr. Chodrung Kunga spoke about the significance of the occasion and guided the group through preliminary prayers and practices, the reading of the sutras, and the dedication.
