Digital Publications


Classical Tibetan texts

...for the digital age

Tsadra Foundation is delighted to introduce a new series of digital books and apps on Tibetan Buddhism. We are launching this exciting venture with the bilingual and Tibetan iPad editions of Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Tayé's encyclopedic masterpiece The Treasury of Knowledge. These digital publications are the result of years of research and development exploring how to use emerging technologies to create a bridge to the most important texts for the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. The Treasury of Knowledge will be followed by other significant collections from the Tibetan canon.

These publications open the door onto a rich new world. We invite you to join us in exploring it!
