Samādhirāja Sūtra Translation Plans?

Post by Seeker12 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 4:06 pm

Are there any known plans for a full translation of the Samādhirāja Sūtra? It seems to be a very often-cited sutra and as far as I know it is only partially translated piecemeal into English.

Secondly, does anyone have experience with the partial English translations? Are they worth-while?

Thanks for any input.

I'm familiar with these, as I alluded to in my original post. For anyone else reading this, I'm interested in the questions that I originally posted. Thanks.
