The Formation of the Tibetan Buddhist Canon and Its Textual Value

August 6 at 8:00 am - 10:00 am UTC+0

“藏译佛典的形成与文本价值” |The Formation of the Tibetan Buddhist Canon and its Textual Value

(中文讲座 |Lecture in Chinese)

by Prof. Saerji, Peking University |北京大学,萨尔吉教授

作为大规模的佛教经典集成,藏译佛典与汉译佛典、梵语巴利语佛典并称佛教研究的基础资料集成,但相较而言,藏译佛典受到的关注则较为薄弱。本讲座旨在从历时和共时两个层面探讨藏译佛典翻译、集成的历史,说明其在佛教文献研究中的重要性,包括:1.吐蕃时期的经录、敦煌藏译佛典的价值;2.汉藏佛教交流大背景下的佛典对比研究;3.藏译佛典集成的谱系的初步探讨——写本与刻本;4.今后研究的任务
As a collection of massive Buddhist scriptures, the Tibetan Buddhist canon is one of the fundamental sources for Buddhist studies. However, the Tibetan Buddhist canon attracted less attention from Buddhist scholars in the past than the Sanskrit-Pāli literature and the Chinese Buddhist canon. This lecture aims at introducing the textual value of the Tibetan canon in the studies of Buddhist literature. It investigates the history of the Tibetan canon’s translation and formation from both diachronic and synchronic points of view. The main points covered by this lecture are: 1. The value of the catalogues and the Dunhuang manuscripts produced during the Tibetan empire; 2. Comparative studies of Buddhist texts in the context of Sino-Tibetan Buddhist exchange; 3. Preliminary studies of the genealogy of the Tibetan canon: manuscripts and woodblock printing; 4. Future studies.

The Goodman Lectures

A series of online lectures by leading Buddhist studies scholars

The Goodman Lectures are organized in honor of long-time Khyentse Foundation friend and advisor Professor Steven D. Goodman (1945–2020), whose enduring vision to make academic talks available to people beyond the classroom inspired KF and our friends in academia to share their knowledge and insight with a more general audience.
