RELB 8706 - The Buddhist Canon in Tibet: Structure, Scope, and Research

This tutorial introduces the structure, scope, and contents of the Tibetan-language Buddhist canonical collections. We will read and discuss selections in both English and Tibetan from the 5000 works in the Scripture (Bka’ ‘gyur) and Treatise (Bstan ‘gyur) collections, as well as reference aids and current research on the canons. The course goal is to develop a firm basis for all research involving Tibetan-language canonical literature.
