✨ The teaching will be in Tibetan, with Mandarin translation on-site and English translation online.

The sutra has recently been translated by the Kumarajiva Project into Chinese for the first time. The English translation is available on the 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha website: https://read.84000.co/translation/toh122.html

In this sutra, the bodhisattva Akaśagarbha asks the Buddha for advice on how bodhisattvas should settle their minds at the time of their death. The Buddha gives the following instructions:

“Since all phenomena are naturally pure,
One should cultivate the clear understanding that there are no entities.
Since all phenomena are connected with the enlightened mind,
One should cultivate the clear understanding of great compassion.
Since all phenomena are naturally luminous,
One should cultivate the clear understanding of non-apprehension.
Since all entities are impermanent,
One should cultivate the clear understanding of non-attachment.
Since the mind is the cause for the arising of wisdom,
Do not look for the Buddha elsewhere.”

The Chinese translation of this sutra will be available online this Saturday morning Taipei time (15 April) on the Kumarajiva Project website.
