Recitation of the Ayra Sangata Sutra

The Sanghāta is a text that talks about itself by name - and talks in great detail about what it will do to anyone who encounters it. It is also an extraordinary literary adventure, full of stories of death, discovery and magical transformations. It is about many things, but first and foremost, the Sanghāta is about what can happen to its readers. That is to say: Most of all, the Sanghāta is about you. Reciting and writing this Sutra can be a powerful transformative experience. 

It teaches in the form of a Buddha.  It teaches even the essence of Dharma.  Who wishes to see a Buddha, Sanghāta is equivalent to a Buddha.  Wherever the Sanghāta is, always there the Buddha is.

Visit www.sanghatasutra.net to learn much more about this sutra and its benefits. Listen to Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche explain and give the transmission of this sutra here.

News Stories

Who Was Lama Tsongkhapa ?

Lama Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a Buddhist scholar and Mahasiddha who founded the Gelugpa tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. His teachings emphasized study, morality and collected the best teachings from the existing schools of Buddhism in Tibet and from Indian Buddhist masters. He was a realized meditator and prolific writer and one of his works The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim Chenmo) is one of the great classics of Buddhism. This outlines the gradual path to enlightenment, laying out the steps a practitioner must take in order to progress to enlightenment. Je Rinpoche’s compositions are famous for being exquisitely clear and paid particular attention to the most difficult points such as the perfection of concentration and highest yoga tantra completion stage practice.

According to Prof. Robert Thurman, “Tsongkhapa attained full enlightenment in 1398 and then taught for twenty-one years in such an intelligent, energetic, and charismatic way that his movement transformed the whole of Tibet and brought it into a genuine renaissance regarding its embodiment of the Dharma.”
