This database for translation work, research and university studies aims at facilitating cooperation and exchanges in projects of common interest, thereby enriching the lineage and its teachings.

Masters, Dharma Centers and practitioners are welcome to participate in the gathering of documents that will benefit the Shangpa lineage and all sentient beings.
