A number of Tibetan translation groups around the world have set an impressive (and exciting!) goal: to translate all of the sutras into English. In support of this undertaking, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche has initiated an online petition, which will be presented this weekend to over fifty translators in Bir, India at the Translating the Words of the Buddha Conference.

The translation groups are hoping to get 10,000 signatures by tomorrow (Saturday), so time is of the essence. Sign the petition here, and check out the associated facebook page.
