English Publications


Snow Lion Publications was established in 1980 in Ithaca, New York. Inspired by a meeting with the Dalai Lama, the three individuals who began Snow Lion vowed to create a press devoted to the preservation of Tibetan Buddhism and culture. The original idea was to present translations from all the schools of Tibetan Buddhism and to publish academic as well as popular titles. Snow Lion has become the largest press devoted to Tibetan Buddhism, having published over two hundred titles on Tibet and Tibetan Buddhism (printing over one million copies) and distributing over six hundred and fifty titles published by other presses.

Tsadra Foundation is delighted to ally with Snow Lion Publications in making important texts available in the English language. The Foundation would like to acknowledge the tireless effort of Sidney Piburn and Jeff Cox, their team of editors, and the incredible contribution of Snow Lion Publications to the advancement and publication of serious translations of Tibetan Buddhist literature.
