Translation Progress

In 2009, it was determined that only 5% of the Canon had ever been translated into a language spoken today. Working first on the Kangyur, we have raised that figure to almost 10%, and are on track to reach our 2035 target for the complete translation and publication of the Kangyur’s 70,000 pages.

Once the Kangyur is complete, the remaining 75 years of our project will be dedicated to the translation and online publication of the 161,800 pages of the Tengyur.
