Padmakara Translation Group

The Padmakara Translation Groupand its publishing branch Editions Padmakara were established in 1987 to preserve and make available for a western public the classics of Tibetan literature. Translators of many nationalities work under the direction of Tsétrul Péma Wangyal Rinpoché and Jigmé Khyentsé Rinpoché.

From 2001 to 2012 Tsadra Foundation has been supporting the work of a number of the translators of this Translation Group. A number of these translators continue to be supported by the Foundation as Tsadra Foundation Fellows.
