Sanskrit for 8 Buddhas

Postby Will » Sat May 18, 2013 3:53 pm

This fine teaching by Mipham bodhisattva give the Tibetan rendering for the 8 buddhas, but anyone know the Sanskrit equivalent? In romanized text, not devanagari please.

One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

Hi Will,

here are three links where you can find the names of these Buddhas addressed in the prayer.

http://www.jimsande.org/Tashi.html
http://monlam.org/eightnoble.html

maybe that one is most helpful

Hope that helps!

Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

I love this prayer. I'd like to thank you for this. I prefer to recite prayers in the original language(s). I am learning Sanskrit metre and intonation to chant Vedic ślokas, and with a little education in Tibetan, I can do this.

That's all. :namaste:
