Haa receives gold-scripted Gaydtongpa text

The Office of the Holy Gold Script handed a 444-paged gold-scripted Gaydtongpa text to the Haa District Administration, today. Gaydtongpa, or the “Perfect Wisdom Sutra in Eight Thousand Verses,” is considered the main relic and the most important teaching of the Buddha. The project, an upshot of the Royal Kanjur Project initiated under His Majesty’s Secretariat aims to further nurture and develop local artisans to write Buddhist scripts in gold.

The handing-taking ceremony was presided over by the former Tsugla Lopen. The event was attended by the representatives from His Majesty’s Secretariat, Lam Neten, and officials of Haa District Administration. The Gaydtongpa was scripted in gold at a cost of Nu 3.5 M through donations from the people of Haa.
