What comes to mind when you think of a library? The distinct feel, smell, and sound of such a sacred and awe-inspiring refuge breathes life into our memories and minds.
Picture this…a brand new library combining modern and traditional, filled with knowledge and potential. This is what we are building together in Dzachuka. There will be scores of pechas, sacred Tibetan texts, and cushions to sit on the floor for reading them. Computers will give access to world-wide digital resources for research and study.
The library will also have bookstacks with Tibetan books with western-style bindings on not only dharma subjects, but also about nature and environment, animals, culture and history.
The library on the First Floor will not only serve the monks studying at the Shedra, but will be available to community members.
In addition, the Community Center on the ground floor will also have a small library with resources on health, handicrafts, and Tibetan arts.
The library will hold the cultural and spiritual traditions of Tibetan Buddhism, cultivating curiosity and wisdom.
We need your help to make it happen.
