“84,000: Translating the Words of the Buddha” is a historic endeavor is a result of the collective vision and aspirations of seven Tibetan masters and more than 50 of the world’s foremost translators, who convened at the seminal Translating the Words of the Buddha Conference held in Deer Park Institute in Bir, India, in 2009. The goal is to make all 70,000 pages of the Kangyur (words of the Buddha) available within 25 years, and all 161,800 pages of the Tengyur (treatises on the words of the Buddha) available within a hundred years.
