The Treasury of Lives: Biographies of Himalayan Religious Masters

The Treasury of Lives is a project of the Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation. Its mission is to provide well-researched and clearly written biographies of all known masters of Tibetan religion, both Buddhist and Bon, each illustrated with portraits. The site is linked with the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center (TBRC), an online library of Tibetan literature, and Himalayan Art Resources (HAR), a virtual museum of Himalayan art.

....

The Treasury of Lives began in 2006 under the leadership of Vivian Kurz of the Dilgo Khyentse Fellowship / Shechen, and Moke Mokotoff. Vivian served as general editor and created a prototype Nyingma website. Moke hired Dan Martin, Cyrus Stearns, and Miranda Adams to write material for the Kagyu, Jonang, and Gelug traditions.


Really excellent site!

In fact I was looking for a bio of Ra Lotsawa today as there are many aspects of his early life that I don't understand (all that controversial magical combat stuff ) .

This is an awesome resource Kirt. Thank you!
    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!
