NEWS

It was a great honour for Tib Shelf to be described by Dr. Alexander Gardner, Director and Chief Editor of the Treasury of Lives, as “an exciting new website, a publishing platform for translations of Tibetan texts…I really recommend the site, I think it is terrific!” during his talk with The Shang Shung Institute. The text that he mentions is a translation about Mura Pema Dechen. For a snippet of the talk click here.

Social Enterprise

We are delighted to announce that we are now officially a Social Enterprise - an organisation whose "sole reason for being is to serve the common good.” We hope in our own little way, through translating, presenting, and preserving Tibetan primary source texts, together we are able to make sure this knowledge is maintained for future generations, thereby benefitting those with a shared interest.
