Sanghata Sutra - Group Reading

12:00 pm Tuesday, February 19, 2019

Spend the lunch hour on this merit-multiplying holy day by joining our community in a group reading of the Sanghata Sutra

We will read the sutra monastery-style:  All the pages will be divided among those who attend, and then we will all read aloud at the same time until all are finished. The idea is that, even if we are not consciously comprehending the words, the entire sutra is entering our mindstream because we can hear one another speak. It's a joyful cacophony!

About the Sanghata Sutra, according to FPMT:

The Sanghata Sutra is a direct teaching by the Buddha that promises to transform all who read or recite it. At, visitors can learn all about this sutra, view stories of how others have been changed by the text, and get tips on reciting the text. The site includes a global satellite map marking places the text has been recited or copied, and a discussion forum devoted to the Sanghata.

Sponsorship is a two-step process
