Yeshe De Project


In 1959 thousands of Tibetans fled their homeland, carrying with them their most precious treasures, the sacred art and texts from their temples. While Tibetans struggled to survive and rebuild their culture, the texts they had worked so hard to rescue were in danger of being lost forever. Tarthang Tulku's desire to preserve sacred texts inspired the founding of Dharmamudranalaya in India in 1963, Dharma Publishing in America in 1969, and the Yeshe De Project in 1983. The Yeshe De Project has continued the work of text preservation, simultaneously supporting the translation of Dharma texts, scholarly research in Buddhist studies, and other projects that lay the groundwork for Dharma transmission in the West.
