Long Āgama Sutra ［長阿含経］ (Chin Ch’ang-a-han-ching; Jō-agon-gyō): One of the four Chinese Āgama sutras. The other three are the Medium-Length Āgama Sutra, the Miscellaneous Āgama Sutra, and the Increasing by One Āgama Sutra. Translated into Chinese by Buddhayashas and Chu Fo-nien of the Later Ch’in dynasty (384–417) of China, the Long Āgama Sutra consists of thirty sutras, each of which is relatively lengthy. The Long Āgama Sutra in its entirety corresponds to the Pali text Dīgha-nikāya, one of the five Āgamas of the Pali canon, which contains thirty-four long sutras. The Sutra of Preaching Travels, one of the thirty sutras in the Long Āgama Sutra, describes Shakyamuni Buddha’s travels during the year preceding his death. This sutra corresponds to the Pali text Mahāparinibbāna-suttanta, or the Pali Nirvana Sutra. The Description of the World Sutra, the last of the thirty sutras, explains Buddhist cosmology.
