About the Global Live Resounding
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche first suggested the idea of the global live resounding in October 2013 when he was in Bodhgaya. He said it would be beneficial for the resounding to take place in different parts of the world with people connecting online and doing it together. We successfully held a global resounding in December of 2015. We used the Zoom platform, set up with a camera and microphone in each of the venues to simultaneously connect the groups across the globe.
Rinpoche will be presiding over the event.
What is sutra resounding?
Sutra resounding is an ancient monastic tradition during which, the entire Tibetan Kangyur (Words of the Buddha) is read aloud by monks. Each monk is responsible for reading aloud a different section of the Kangyur until it is read in its' entirety.
We are aiming to do a similar thing, except that we will be reading mainly from Sutras that have been translated into English. This means that each region will read a different Sutra or a different section from the same Sutra to create a cacophonous resounding of the Buddhas' Teachings.
What is the objective of sutra resounding?
The objective of sutra resounding is to promote the reading, listening and learning of the actual words of the Buddha. On another level, it can be thought of as a means for sending the words of the Buddha into the universe as a blessing to the world, and/or as a means for making merit.
In Australia we will be hosting the resounding event at different centres at 9.30am (AEDT). The resounding will last approximately 1 hour. During this time we will be live-streaming our sutra reading from the Australian centres to other SI centres internationally, as well as receiving multiple live video streams from these centres during the resounding.
If you would like to join - the following centres listed below will be hosting. Please arrive 15 minutes early to get settled before starting.
If you are unable to attend, you can watch and listen to the resounding livestream broadcast at https://www.youtube.com/user/Translate84000/live as it occurs.
