Buddhadharma : Summer 2019
102 BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER'S QUARTERLY basically serving as a library and resource center for their academic needs. “We want people who are teaching and translating to keep doing that work,” Perman says. “We hope our support helps to give them a sense of authority.” The foundation also hosts international conferences and workshops for Tibetan language translators, creat ing opportunities for translators to network with one another and showcase their work. Tsadra Foundation also invests in crafting digital resources, such as databases of information about ancient Tibetan texts, for advanced practitioners. The Treasury of Knowledge, a tenvolume encyclopedia of Buddhism from Jamgon Kongtrul, has been trans lated into English and made available in a series of interactive apps. Perman says the impact of these digital resources is visible in monas teries in India, Nepal, and Tibet, where he has seen monks scrolling through translated texts on their iPads. As the modern world begins to shelve bulky volumes and piles of papers, Tsadra hopes to provide Buddhist practitioners and monastics with the digitized materials required to go further with their practice and study. While translation remains important to Tsadra, the foundation has expanded its mission to include support for contemplative prac titioners. The Contemplative Scholarship Program sponsors individ uals who are on threeyear retreats; to ensure that these retreats are organized by authentic traditions with safe practice spaces, Chap man meets with both retreat organizers and applicants. Tsadra also runs a Study Scholarship Program that sponsors Western academics who wish to study Tibetan Buddhism in Asia for three years. “The whole approach is designed to benefit intermediatetoadvanced Buddhist students,” says Perman. “These programs are intensive longterm commitments.” Among the prerequisites, applicants must possess an extensive background in Buddhist studies and be able to speak Tibetan. By focusing on this indepth level of training, the foundation hopes to cultivate the Buddhist practitioners and schol ars of the future.
