Sutras are records of teachings given by the historical Buddha, Shakyamuni. The Buddha's discourses were memorized by his disciples and later written down in various languages, the most complete collections of teachings being in Pali and Sanskrit. Because sutras contain the actual words spoken by the Buddha, by reproducing that speech ourselves during recitations our voice becomes a conduit for the spread of Buddha's teachings in the world.
In this MP3 CD Venerable Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche Gives the Oral Transmissions (lung) of The Sutra
of Golden Light, the Sanghata Sutra and the Vajra Cutter Sutra.
An Oral Transmission is an event where the lama, who has personally received the transmission from their teacher, transmits a teaching to the students by reciting the text to them in person. "Incredibly precious - all the Oral transmissions from Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche - Sutra of Golden Light, Vajra Cutter, Sangatasutra - this is something that Lama Zopa Rinpoche has often playing in the car, outside for the animals, etc." Ven. Holly Ansett
PLEASE NOTE: By listening to this material one cannot "receive the transmission". In order to receive the transmission one will have to do so in person with a qualified lama. However there is great blessings and benefit from listening to the recording of the realized lama reciting the blessed text. Any being that hears the recitation will benefit.
