Hallo, I'm new here and please help.
« on: February 06, 2010, 05:40:55 pm »
To all good Buddhist and especially Bhikkhu or Bhikkhuni. Please help me about how can I get Maha Vairocana Sutra for free. I mean I have already got Mahayana Sutra such as Arya Sanghata, Suvarnaprabhasottama, Vimalakirti, SaddharmaPundarika. And all of this I got it from the people post and free also. While I try to google it, there're more Maha Vairocana Sutra but they're not for free. Especially for venerabel Bhikkhu and Bhikkhuni, please help. And thank's for all.

I'm really happy last time cause I got the sanskrit dictionary reference from here. Thank's again. Namo stu Buddhaya.:)

Thank you for replying, I've checked it all and I just got it in chinese version. I mean can't read and understand mandarin, please help. I've also googling every where and find it but it just don't make me can read because it's in Thailand language form. When I try to fing english version, all is about to sell, I mean not fro free. If there's way for me to get an English translation for The Maha Vairocana Sutra, this will make me really happy. You know, I've translated more sutra to make in indonesia language and i'm going to make it for Maha Vairocana Sutra. Please help me.

And thank's so much for replying again.

I would suggest you contact a translation center. 

Here is one.

www.cttbusa.org  Click on the BTTS for the translation section.  If you contact them you may find a working translation or they may know of someone working on it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahavairocana_Tantra This wiki has links to the same CBETA version and also a vietnamese version (see if someone can translate from the vietnamese as well....CTTB has many countries translators who are doing the same work as yourself.  It's worth a check.

Hi, Sen.

Sorry, but I don't have access to the sutra which you want to find, but if you give me your e-mail address via PM (personal message), I will send it along with your post here to a few Mahayana friends who may have access to it in English.

What Makes an Elder? :
A head of gray hairs doesn't mean one's an elder. Advanced in years, one's called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness,self-control, he's called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
-Dhammpada, 19, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Thank you to ron and Venerable Shi Hong Yang.

You know, I'm really happy once more, Dharmakara from Maha Bodhi told me that They will help me. I've translated more sutra into indonesia language ang most of them I made in from english because that's the only language I understand beside The sanskrit too. My english and sanskrit doesn't good but it worth more to me. Please see my work here:

The link  below for Sutra I've translated:

Much gratitude and merit to Venerables Shi Hong Yang, and Dharmakara, defenders, dispensers, distributors,and dispatchers  of The Buddha Dhamma.  :dharma:

As Tina Turner once said, "Thanks for keeping that "Wheel a' Turnin' "."   :D

I would be happy to translate this sutra from Tibetan if someone is interested in commissioning the translation of it. I am assume the name is something like the rnam par snang mdzad chen po'i mdo. Any information on the title in Tibetan would be helpful, but I should be able to find it. Please contact me at emptyelephant@yahoo.com if you are interested.
