In order to fulfill Maitripa’s mission of offering a world-class enlightened education for the 21st century, a world-class research library is essential. We estimate that Maitripa’s Buddhist studies library will ultimately house 20,000 volumes, with collections in Tibetan texts, works in Sanskrit, translations of Tibetan, Sanskrit and Chinese works, and scholarly works in English.
Based on acquisition lists developed in consultation with internationally respected professors of Buddhist studies, we are now actively building our collections. Our aim is to create a lending and research facility that will meet the highest standards of electronic, archival, and print resources for the use of our students, faculty and local community for many years to come.
