Buddhadharma : Summer 2019
HALEIGH ATWOOD 99 scholarships and grants to students and practitioners who wish to study Buddhism or embark on longterm retreats. In 2017, more than 150 students benefited from the scholarship programs alone. “We feel that the dharma is the most important gift, and there fore our effort is to share it with people,” Che says. “We do not build monasteries, we build people.” Khyentse offers scholarships for monastics, lay practitioners, and academic institutions. It also focuses on textual preservation through a project called the Buddhist Universal Digital Archive (BUDA), which aims to digitize Buddhist texts. When completed, all translated texts will be available online through the Harvard University library server, as well as through a mirror site in China so that Chinese scholars may also benefit. For requests that fall outside of preservation, academia, and prac tice, the foundation has dedicated funds, called Ashoka grants, for special projects. The only requirement is that the project must relate in some way to promoting the dharma. Beyond this, Khyentse focuses on supporting three key areas. First is the development and training of Buddhist teachers who are equipped for the twentyfirst century. In addition to developing basic computer skills, this means training leaders who can compassion ately connect with younger generations and people from different ethnicities and backgrounds. Second is the application of Buddhist values in basic childhood education. To further this goal, Khyentse is developing a curriculum for children from kindergarten to grade twelve based on such fundamental Buddhist concepts as wisdom and interdependence. The third area is the fostering of Buddhist studies at universities and colleges through grants and partnerships. Two landmark events in this category include the establishment of the Khyentse Chair of Buddhist Studies at UC Berkeley and the Khyen tse Center for Buddhist Textual Scholarship at Hamburg University.
