The Sanghata Sutra is a Mahayana Buddhist Sutra. Unlike other sutras, the Sanghata records a discourse in which the Buddha explains that he had heard the Sanghata from a previous Buddha. It is an extraordinary literary adventure, full of stories of death, discovery and magical transformations, but first and foremost, the Sanghata explains how it transforms all those who encounter it.
The sutra recitation by the monks began on the 31st of May. It is planned for this filmed relay to continue in various languages for at least 14 days. For more information on Nalanda Monastery, its events and study program, please visit www.nalanda-monastery.eu.
