Teaching on Sūtra | The Good Eon offered by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

We invite you to join us live on Saturday, March 5, to celebrate Losar with our Founding Chair, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, who will introduce 84000’s new publication of the sūtra The Good Eon, followed by a Q&A.

 

We are excited to share that this Losar we will publish The Good Eon, a seminal text from the Kangyur in which the Buddha delivers an elaborate discourse on the six perfections to an audience of bodhisattvas who will be known as buddhas in the future. In this sūtra the Buddha specifies the names of the thousand buddhas of this fortunate eon, and goes on to describe the circumstances surrounding their birth, awakening, and teaching in the world.

 

Each and every Buddha of this sūtra is beautifully represented in a massive mural painting that wraps the courtyard of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, in Shigatse. Fortunately for us all, a member of 84000’s editorial team had the foresight and patience to document the entire courtyard, and in the run up to the publication of this new translation, has graciously shared them with us.
