QUERY> Seeking information about a publisher of Tibetan books in China

Dear Colleagues,

I have an edition of the collected works of Gorampa Sonam Senge, and I’m trying to track down information about when it was published. There’s no publication information in any of the texts themselves; the only identifying information seems to be on the box that the collection was shipped in.


NEW BOOK> Word Embodied: The Jeweled Pagoda Mandalas in Japanese Buddhist Art

Dear colleagues, 
With apologies for cross-listing, I would like to announce the publication of my new book Word Embodied: The Jeweled Pagoda Mandalas in Japanese Buddhist Art (Harvard East Asian Monographs 412) with Harvard University Press.

Dear Colleagues,

As many of you are enjoying a well-deserved holiday, we wanted to bring to your attention the growing multi-media section of the Ghent Centre for Buddhist Studies website: http://www.cbs.ugent.be/node/680

Here, you will find links to presentations by Stuart Young (on Chinese Buddhism and Silk), Ann Heirman (on Chinese Buddhist material culture), Pu Chengzhong (on the 十二遊經), and Li Gang (on reading Buddhist Uyghur texts). We hope these can be of use to you, whether for your research or teaching.
