Buddhist wisdom is clearly expressed in the wealth of writings that comprise its accumulated learning and that demonstrate the keenness of its analytical discernment. Tsadra Foundation is committed to assuring the best possible transmission of this wealth of knowledge and understanding through quality translations of important Buddhist texts and commentaries.
We are particularly interested in the translation of the core curriculum of the traditional college of studies, as well as texts that will benefit individuals who are actively engaged in the contemplative process.
In keeping with the non-sectarian approach of the foundation, the texts selected for translation represent a variety of traditions and views.
At the present time we support translation into English and French.
