The Shangpa Kagyu Resource Center

Sharing and preserving works of the Shangpa Kagyu Tradition

This collaborative and multilingual project enables the sharing and preservation of authentic documents of the Shangpa tradition. It is also a valuable database for translation work, research and university studies.  This project is intended to foster a sense of sisterhood and brotherhood among members of the lineage and to facilitate cooperation and exchanges in projects of common interest, thereby enriching the lineage and its teachings.

    • Documents about Kalu Dorje Chang: text, video and audio documents of his teachings, photos,etc.
    • Shangpa texts in UNICODE, translations, tangkas, and other useful documents for the lineage.
  • Access

  • Partnerships

    Under consideration now is a long-term collaboration with the TBRC (Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center), which for years has been continuously developing an online database that is accessible to all, collecting and classifying documents of the Tibetan Buddhist Traditions.
