 "The Arya Sanghata Sutra is a Mahayana Buddhist scripture that promises to transform all those who read it. Like

other sutras, the Sanghata records a discourse given by the Buddha, but unlike other sutras, Buddha tells us he

himself had heard the Sanghata from a previous buddha. The Sanghata is a text that talks about itself by name—and

talks in great detail about what it will do to anyone who encounters it. It is also an extraordinary literary

adventure, full of stories of death, discovery and magical transformations. It is about many things, but first and

foremost, the Sanghata is about what can happen to its readers. That is to say: Most of all, the Sanghata is about

you."

"The Sanghata Sutra unfolds from a question posed to the Buddha, who is asked whether there is any teaching that can

remove the negative karma of the five uninterrupted actions simply by hearing it. The basic answer that the Buddha

gives is yes, as a matter of fact, there is such a text, and this is it: the Sanghata Sutra."


"People usually find it most effective to recite the sutra all at once, rather than doing partial recitations or

dividing the recitation into different sessions. However, since there are tremendous benefits to reciting even one

verse from the Sanghata, when it is not possible to do complete recitations, it is still extremely beneficial to

recite when one can, as many pages as one can at each time."
