During a recent puja in Taiwan, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche used the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center (TBRC) digital library of Tibetan archives to gain direct access to the texts he needed. [intlink id=”1308″ type=”post”]Watch the KF Publications video [/intlink]to learn how the digital library works. The Foundation supports TBRC’s text preservation and digitization initiatives, which are under the direction of scholar Gene Smith. TBRC has acquired over 15,000 volumes of Tibetan texts, the largest collection in the world. These precious texts will be scanned, formatted, and archived for easy distribution. These preservation initiatives benefit not only Buddhists, but also the world at large by sharing the highly developed traditions of scholarship and practice. In addition to Buddhist texts, the collection includes material in metaphysics, ethics, philosophy, psychology, medicine, poetry, and art.
