"To experienced practitioners, the Tsadra Foundation Series is more precious than gold dust." —Tricycle Magazine
The Tsadra Foundation is a U.S.-based nonprofit organization that was founded in 2000 in order to support the activities of advanced Western students of Tibetan Buddhism, specifically those with significant contemplative experience. Taking its inspiration from the nineteenth century non-sectarian Tibetan scholar and meditation master Jamgön Kongtrül Lodrö Tayé, the Tsadra Foundation is named after his hermitage in eastern Tibet, Tsadra Rinchen Drak. The Foundation's various program areas reflect his values of excellence in both scholarship and contemplative practice, and the recognition of their mutual complementarity.
Tsadra Foundation's Translation Program aims to make authentic and authoritative texts from the Tibetan traditions available in English. The Foundation is honored to presents the work of its fellows and grantees, individuals of confirmed contemplative and intellectual integrity; however, their views do not necessarily reflect those of the Foundation.
The Tsadra Foundation is supporting the publication of The Treasury of Knowledge series. Currently available titles are:
