The Shangpa Kagyü Resource Center intends to form a collaborative and multilingual platform to share and preserve digital texts and information concerning the Shangpa Kagyü lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. 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.


The Shangpa Kagyu Resource Center is a participative project that will evolve according to contributions, thanks to international collaboration. Masters, Dharma Centers and practitioners are welcome to participate in the gathering of documents that will benefit the Shangpa lineage and all sentient beings.
