Translation of Tibetan/Sanskrit suttas to modern languages - site

Just stumbled on this site

A global non-profit initiative to translate the Buddha’s words from the Tibetan Buddhist Canon into modern languages, and to make them available to everyone

Apologies if it has been flagged before , just thought it may be of interest.



They are aiming to translate the entire kangyur and tengyur.

I have nothing but respect for people who begin a project knowing they will have to pass the torch because they won’t live long enough to repeat it.


I hope they may first translate the following Tibetan text into English, together with its Chinese version (T no. 1579, pp. 772b-868b):

Yogācārabhūmau vastusaṁgrahaṇī རྣལ་འབྱོར་སྤྱོད་པའི་ས་ལས་གཞི་བསྡུ་ (i.e. the Vastusaṅgrahaṇī of the Yogācārabhūmi) (Peking edition (Ōtani), no. 5540).
