Sanghāta to be Recited Again on Vulture's Peak in 2006
On March 14, 2006, the
Sanghata will be recited on the very spot where in India where it was
first uttered by the Buddha: at Vulture's Peak itself, in
Raja-griha. We invite you to join us to contribute your own voice
wherever you are, as a group of pilgrims and the
translator of the Sanghata bring the words of the Buddha
back to the very place from which they were first released on this
14, 2006 is the Day of Miracles, and also a
full moon day on which a lunar eclipse will take place, making
this event particularly potent. For more information on this and other

In the Words of the Sanghāta:
The Sangháta Sutra is a teacher,
manifesting in the form of a sage.
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.
