Volunteers for BTTS

The Buddhist Text Translation Society could use the help of many volunteers with their "sutra translation, publication and circulation". Anyone interested is welcome to join.

Please contact bttsvolunteers@gmail.com

When will the Earth Store Bodhisattva Sutra and commentary be published again? Do you have any idea?
In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

It is being serialized in Vajra Bodhi Sea magazine now; but when it may show up in book form, I do not know. Maybe the lack of volunteers has something to do with the slow pace of their translations.
