Preservation Projects with Shambhala Archives

Project 8 of 14

Digitizing the Transcripts

transcriptsIn 2013 and 2014, we provided significant funding to the Archives to digitize old typed and handwritten transcripts of the Vidyadhara’s lectures.  With our funding and a grant from the Canadian government, the Archives has digitized 20,000 pages out of a total of 50,000 pages. The transcripts will still need to be corrected and many talks will require re-transcription, as part of CHELA.
