Translation Studies Scholarship

“The great masters, scholars, saints, patrons, kings, and Brahmins of the past traded their lives and their wealth and sometimes even the throne of the state for the sake of the words of the Buddha. It would be so unfortunate to lose even one word.”

 Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche
