This recitation of the Diamond Cutter Sutra helps to purify one’s speech, calm the mind, harmonise relationships, and bring the blessings of the Buddha’s wisdom directly into your life. This short sutra takes the form of an amazing conversation between Subhuti and the Buddha, a call and response that cuts through our grasping at inherent existence.
Today is the Day of Miracles, the culmination of the 14 special Buddha Days starting on Tibetan New Year, so all actions done with a positive motivation have incredible power to bring far-reaching and beneficial results.
We ask you to abide by our COVID-safe plan and observe physical distancing, wear a face-mask if you wish, and stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies.

Reciting together as a group is a powerful way to remove the causes of confusion and plant the seeds of wisdom. Lama Zopa Rinpoche says that even just hearing about emptiness, even with a mind of confusion, is like an atom bomb to the delusions! Rinpoche especially recommended for us to recite the sutra here at LTC as a group, to ensure the continued flourishing of our centre – so your participation is greatly appreciated!
We will dedicate this recitation the health and long life of Lama Zopa Rinpoche, as recommended by Khandro-la, as being very beneficial in removing obstacles to our precious guru’s health and long life. By reciting we remove obstacles and gather the inner resources to be able to take teachings in person from our precious guru.
