Shechen Archives

Postby phantom59 » Sat May 14, 2011 6:05 pm

Shechen Archives are located in the Tsering Art School building on the grounds of Shechen Tennyi Dargyeling Monastery in Nepal.The archives shelter rare texts, paintings, photographs, and negatives in a climate-controlled room where they are protected from dust and dampness.Safely stored in the archives is a collection of several hundred ancient manuscripts, xylographic prints, and rare original Tibetan texts. Original thangkas and small miniature paintings that are essential for ceremonies and scholarly iconographic research are also preserved.

Three hundred hours of teachings given by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche are protected within the archives. These rare talks cover major aspects of Buddhist philosophy and practice and are irreplaceable. They were recorded on 90 audiocassettes, and many of them are old and deteriorating. Shechen is in the process of archiving and further preserving these tapes. Your help is needed to complete the restoration.
