Join Us as the Sanghāta is Recited Again on Vulture's Peak

first uttered by the Buddha: at Vulture's Peak itself, in
Raja-griha. We invite you to join us to contribute your own voice

In the Words of the Sanghāta:
The Sangháta manifests, out of kindness,
even bodies of buddhas.
As many grains of sand as the Ganges
in just that many forms it teaches.
It teaches in the form of a Buddha.
It teaches even the essence of Dharma.
Who wishes to see a Buddha,
Sangháta is equivalent to a Buddha.
Wherever the Sangháta is,
always there the Buddha is.
- Ārya Sanghāta Sūtra
