Summary

A world heritage of profound methods for establishing inner peace and social harmony, Tibetan Buddhist culture is endangered. The free of charge web site www.berzinarchives.com contains a vast array of written and audio teachings true to traditional Tibetan values, yet instructive and inspiring to our modern minds and contemporary lives. Accessible to the blind and the deaf, translated into multiple languages, this web site serves as a 21st century portal to the ageless wisdom of Tibet.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

In an age of uncertainty, multiple methods are needed for dealing with both individual emotional stress and, on a larger scale, societal tension. In the face of hardship, many people struggle to cope. Basic human values are often forgotten as greed and corruption have become commonplace. Mistrust among traditions abounds. The challenge is to make easily available, on a global scale, universally applicable practical methods for enhancing wisdom, compassion, and ethically responsible action.

How will this project solve this problem?

Harnessing cutting-edge digital technology, the Berzin Archives web site brings the time-proven Tibetan teachings to over a million visitors a year worldwide. With thousands of articles and audio lectures, its clear explanations make the most profound insights of the Tibetan traditions understandable and applicable to daily life. In doing so, it better enables those who apply the wisdom found in the Berzin Archives to meet the challenges of our times in more realistic and compassionate ways.

Potential Long Term Impact

With the Berzin Archives web site made sustainable and enabled to keep growing, the knowledge and experience the Tibetan traditions transmit will not be lost. They will continue to provide useful strategies that anyone can adopt for dealing with the challenges that lie ahead.
