The Ancient Tantra Collection from Sangyeling

Subtitle:
Sangs rgyas gling rNying ma’i rgyud ‘bum
Abstract:
This project successfully photographed all surviving 41 volumes and 16,071 pages of a rare and endangered early 18th century manuscript edition of Tibetan 'Old Tantras' located at Sangs-rgyas-gling dgon-pa, Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh, India. Given the paucity of surviving canonical collections of this type, the publication of this accessible electronic edition is a welcome new resource for those engaged in the study of Tibet's 'Old Tantras'.
