LIVE TOUR of 84000 Reading Room

84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha is a non profit global initiative to translate the Tibetan Buddhist Canon (Kangyur and Tengyur) into modern languages, and to make them available to everyone.

Headed in the interim by Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse Rinpoche, 84000 is endorsed and supported by the lineage holders of all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism, as well as academics from eminent Universities.

As 84000 moves into the third year of our existence, we are pleased to report that we are now funding more than 60 translators worldwide to translate more than 10% of the Kangyur – approximately 8,000 pages of the Words of the Buddha.

The first live tour of the 84000 Reading Room is open now, with the online publication of the first batch of completed English language translations in a free online reading environment. Contact us at  if you would like to be notified of timing of the live tour.
