84000: Translating the Words of the Buddha — whose mission is “to translate all of the Buddha’s words into modern languages, and to make them available to everyone” — has announced two new developments related to that goal: the launch of a revamped online “state-of-the-art reading room,” and “the publication of ten newly translated Tibetan Buddhist texts.”
About the Reading Room, 84000 says:
The upgraded state-of-the-art platform is first-of-its-kind and features fully responsive and mobile-friendly interfaces as well as easily navigable and searchable content. The Reading Room is compatible with the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), an international standard used by libraries, museums, publishers and scholars to encode digital texts and to systematically compile important textual information.
The newly translated texts are as follows: The Question of Maitreya, The Question of Maitreya on the Eight Qualities, The Illusory Absorption, The Absorption That Encapsulates All Merit, The Teaching on the Extraordinary Transformation that is the Miracle of Attaining the Buddha’s Powers, The Sūtra of the Inquiry of Jayamati, The Tantra of Caṇḍamahāroṣaṇa, The Tantra of Siddhaikavīra, Destroyer of the Great Trichiliocosm, and Upholding the Great Secret Mantra. View them all via links found here.
The texts are available to all, rendered in an easy-to-use format with interactive access to extensive glossaries and notes.
