This episode of the Wisdom Podcast, recorded live as a Wisdom Dharma Chat, features an interview with Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche—teacher, filmmaker, writer, and founder of several nonprofit initiatives including 84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha. This episode was a special launch celebration for the 84000 app.

Rinpoche and host Daniel Aitken discuss

  • the importance and challenges of translating the Buddha’s words,
  • how we should think about the Buddha’s original teachings,
  • how Buddhism guides us through thinking about concepts like ignorance (rather than sin) and merit (as something that brings us closer to the truth),
  • the role of technology in learning, practicing, and teaching Dharma,
  • and much more.
