Deer Park hosted a reading of the entire Kangyur, the Buddha's Speech. The Kangyur was read in Tibetan. For those who did not read Tibetan, there were a few sutras available in English. These include: Vajra Cutter Sutra, the Sutra of Golden Light, and the Sanghata Sutra.
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, Jangtse Choje Rinpoche, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, and for world peace. This reading is especially dedicated to the long life and good health of our most precious teacher, Geshe Sopa la.
