About the Treasury of Knowledge Collection
The Treasury of Knowledge, a unique encyclopedic masterpiece by Jamgön Kongtrul Lodro Tayé (1813-1900), comprising the entire range of Buddhist teachings as they were preserved in Tibet.
The Treasury of Knowledge contains ten books, the first four of which are historically oriented, focusing respectively on cosmology, the Buddha, his teachings, and their propagation in ancient India and Tibet. The fifth book concerns the integration of monastic, bodhisattva, and mantra vows, while the next three (books six through eight) concern the cultivation of discriminative awareness, through study, reflection, and meditation, respectively. The last two books, nine and ten, offer Kongtrul’s syncretic analysis of the spiritual paths and goals attained through the causal and fruition vehicles of Buddhist practice. The Treasury also includes an introduction and a conclusion preceding and concluding the ten books, respectively.
This update merges all the Tsadra Foundation apps into a single library. This version has been rebranded as the Tsadra Bilingual Library app.
Ratings and Reviews
An amazing doorway to a full picture of Tibetan Buddhist tradition
Wow. The content of this app is like none other. Kongtrul's focus and intension is wonderful and clearly represented by this compendium of his works. Thank you for putting together. The tech is a standard e-book reference style, used by many other e-books.
Incredible content, terrible tech
The ability to see the entire Treasury of Knowledge in translation and the original Tibetan all in one place is truly a marvel. Not to mention the excellent formatting along with various outlines to refer to. Kudos to all who worked to make this available.
Unfortunately the app is not very stable. It freezes and crashes constantly making it virtually unusable. The content is amazing, but if no one can access it, what good is the app?
This app is beautiful to look at and beautiful to read! I'm so very grateful to the people and donors who made this possible. May all benefit from the blessings of this text.
