Important Translation Projects

Dear Vajra family,

Many days have already passed since I contacted you regarding supporting the translation projects of the Shang Shung Institute Austria. In the meantime the translators have continued their precious and valuable work of translating various Dzogchen texts – mainly Teachings of our Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu – into English, so that these translations will soon be available in books in a language that is easy to understand.

AAs you know, the Shang Shung Institute Austria is responsible for financing the KA-TER TRANSLATION PROJECT and the  COMPLETE WORKS OF CHÖGYAL NAMKHAI NORBU translation project. The main translators of these initiatives are Adriano Clemente and Elio Guarisco.

These two translation projects are financed ONLY by donations from you, the precious Sangha, the members of the Dzogchen Community.

Please continue to support our so unique and outstanding activities in order to make the marvellous texts of wisdom available for all interested people,
please “APPLY GENEROSITY” as Chögyal Namkhai Norbu pointed out during his last retreat at Merigar West.

What about getting one of the limited GARUDA DONATION PACKAGE or the DONATION PACKAGE 2014 ?

The other important task of the Shang Shung Institute Austria in the last 12 years has been to offer Tibetan language courses and special trainings for translators from Tibetan.

Only a few days ago we also finished our 12th Training for translators from Tibetan that was held in Merigar West under the guidance of Prof. Fabian Sanders. Please read some notes on these courses and about the Shang Shung Institute Austria on the website of THE MIRROR:
The translators of the intermediate and advanced level followed the course directly in Merigar and also via Skype – see the report on Intermediate and Advanced course:
The course for beginners was attended by many people and for the first time this course was also transmitted by closed webcast – see the report on the Beginners course:

Thank you so much for all your generosity, your understanding of the given situation, and your collaboration,

very best wishes,
