NEWS FLASH from 84,000 : Sutra Resounding!

Tuesday 29 May, SYDNEY

One of the four great annual commemorations of major events in the life of Buddha Shakyamuni, this particular day marks both his enlightenment and nirvana. The Buddha attained enlightenment at the age of 35 in what is now known as Bodh Gaya, and 45 years later he passed away on the same full moon day in Kushinagar.

We will be joining with Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche's sangha to practice the resounding of the Samadhiraj Sutra in its recent 84000 translation followed by the practice of the Buddha Sadhana The Treasury of Blessings. Everyone is welcome.

For the resounding: Download the Samadhiraj Sutra here and print or have available on an electronic device. The sutra text will not be provided
