    Translating the Sutras Paid Member

    A number of Tibetan translation groups around the world have set an impressive (and exciting!) goal: to translate all of the sutras into English. In support of this undertaking, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche has initiated an online petition, which will be presented this weekend to over fifty translators in Bir, India at the Translating the Words of the Buddha Conference. The translation groups are hoping to get 10,000 signatures by tomorrow (Saturday), so time is of the essence. Sign the petition here, and check out the associated facebook page. More »

    Beastie Boys film Paid Member

    Oscilloscope Laboratories, the film distribution company started by Beastie Boy and Buddhist Adam Yauch, will be releasing the Buddhist documentary Unmistaken Child on June 12th at the Film Forum in New York City. From Oscilloscope: The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most Westerners to grasp. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the 4-year-search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk's devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master's reincarnation, a child who may be anywhere in the world. Tenzin sets off on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. More »
