−Kangyur Reading – DETAIL CLICK8:30 am – 5:30 pm
Deer Park will host a reading of the entire Kangyur, the Buddha’s
Speech. The Kangyur will be read in Tibetan. For those who do
not read Tibetan, there are a few sutras available in English. These
include: Vajra Cutter Sutra, the Sutra of Golden Light, and the
Sanghata Sutra. Deer Park has a limited number of these sutras in
English. If you have your own copies to read, please bring them.
The purpose for this reading is for the long life and good health
of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, for the long lives and good health
of Geshe Sopa Rinpoche, Jangste Choje Rinpoche, Lama Zopa
Rinpoche, and Geshe Tenzin Dorje la, and for world peace. It is also
dedicated to the quick resolution of the situation in Tibet and for
those who have self-immolated in protest of Communist Chinese
repression in Tibet. This reading is especially dedicated to the long
life and good health of our most precious teacher, Geshe Sopa la.
If any Tibetan families would like to or are able to sponsor
morning or afternoon tea with bread or lunch or dinner
during one of the 5 days of Kangyur reading, please con-
