New “Diamond Sutra” Video Available Now

Click for Video Version of “Diamond Sutra – A New Translation”

Shaun visited the website and was inspired to make a video of the reading of this powerful sutra.

The video Shaun made includes the audio reading contributed by Ryan, who is another visitor who was motivated to make an audio version of the Diamond Sutra.

Shaun wanted to include a Chinese translation of this new English translation – so the final video is a combination of the English and Chinese translations, with the English translation read by Ryan.

You can watch the Video of the Diamond Sutra by Shaun on YouTube by clicking here.

Shaun’s YouTube channel isĀ Dharmachakra Wheel of the Dharma and includes links to many videos about Buddhist sutras.

I encourage you to visit Shaun’s YouTube channel “Beautiful Buddhism Mantra and Video Channel” and subscribe.

Thank you Shaun for a wonderful contribution that will spread the power of the Diamond Sutra to even more people around the world!

Your inspired work and contribution will reach many people and inspire visitors for many years to come.

Welcome to “Diamond Sutra – A New Translation”

top_logo1Thanks for visiting the Diamond Sutra Translation website.

I have upgraded the look and feel of the site this February, to make the text of the Diamond Sutra even more readable online.

The earlier version of the site did not have any formatting of the text, and in this new online version I have highlighted the Buddha’s words to make them stand out and easier to read. This seems to make the text flow better, and highlight the most important parts at the same time.

It took quite a lot of work to reformat and improve this website, so it is my hope that you enjoy your visit here.

Please share this website with others you know if you find it valuable – I appreciate the support of the many visitors who leave kind comments and contributions to support the maintenance and reach of this website.

Thanks again for visiting,

Alex Johnson
