Through your support, the Berzin Archives website has continued to be the largest provider of authentic, free-of-charge information about Tibetan Buddhism and culture on the Internet. As many readers have expressed interest in our ongoing work and projects, I would like to keep you updated regularly on our work in progress. With an encyclopedic project such as ours, a large volume of new material goes back and forth each week among our over 80 volunteers and paid workers in its various stages of production. With your continuing support and much hard work from our Berzin Archives team, we hope that all these works will be completed and online in the near future.
