Project Report | Sep 6, 2022
Berzin Archives Report: June through August 2022

Over the summer, our work at Study Buddhism HQ has continued as we fine-tune the website and bring small changes that create a much better user experience. We’ve been exploring ways to make our recently-released functionality – personal user accounts – more useful and feature-rich. Furthermore, we’ve created new icons and launched them across the site, making it very easy to distinguish between text-only articles, articles that feature audio, articles that feature video, and articles that feature both. This will benefit our users who prefer media rich content, and who like breaking up reading text with a short video break!

Our YouTube channel zoomed past the 45,000-subscriber milestone in June, which is a 50% increase in subscribers in 12 months – quite a feat when you consider the numbers involved. In the last three months alone, our YouTube channel was watched by 100,000 brand new viewers, many of them attracted by our latest video interview series with Ven. Thupten Ngodup, the medium of the Nechung State Oracle. As we add more and more subtitles in our various languages, we are also seeing more and more visitors from their respective countries. This last quarter saw viewers from Nepal enter our top ten list, and we are also seeing our audience in Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, and Cambodia increasing. Meanwhile, on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, our sharing of articles, videos, and quotes is going equally as well, with good growth and engagement on each of these platforms. 

We have also been busy producing new content that we will start to release later this year and into next year. Firstly, we interviewed Ajahn Amaro, a well-known and much-loved Theravada teacher, and the abbot of Amaravati Monastery in the UK. Secondly, we interviewed Geshe Tenzin Namdak, the resident teacher of Jamyang Buddhist Centre in London, and the first westerner to complete the full geshe degree at one of the “Three Great Seats” (the greatest learning centers in Tibet – that is, Sera, Drepung, and Ganden monasteries). Lastly but by no means least, we interviewed Venerable Steve Carlier, an interpreter, translator, and Buddhist teacher based at the Land of Medicine Buddha in California. We are excited to be able to share with you the incredible wisdom of these three wonderful teachers.

Altogether, our translators and editors have prepared 307 new articles. You’ll find all the details in the bulleted list below.

Here are some of our accomplishments over these last three months:

  • Preparation and publication of 307 translations into our various languages
  • Translation and addition of new descriptions and abstracts to articles in 28 of our language sections  
  • Preparation of 16 further parts of “Details of Karma,” containing extensive translations of Sanskrit and Tibetan primary sources
  • Copyediting of 36 English transcripts and files
  • Addition of social media buttons to table of content pages in multipart articles
  • Development and implementation of the feature to add images to table of content pages and parts in multipart articles
  • Addition of Related Articles feature to table of content pages and parts in multipart articles
  • Expansion of information provided for items in Related Articles feature
  • Further development of Artificial Intelligence generated Similar Articles feature
  • Creation and implementation of new icons on the menu pages of the website sections indicating audio, video or both audio and video content in single and multipart articles
  • Researching and prototyping Report Typo feature
  • Editing of 14 videos of our interview with Jhado Rinpoche, the former abbot of Namgyal Monastery, the personal monastery of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
  • Video interview with Ajahn Amaro, abbot of Amaravati Monastery in the UK.
  • Video interview with Geshe Tenzin Namdak, resident teacher at Jamyang Buddhist Centre, UK.
  • Video interview with Venerable Steve Carlier, Buddhist teacher and translator at Land of Medicine Buddha, USA.
  • Preparation of 8 quotes taken from our video interviews and other sources from the website, accompanied with graphics, and the uploading of these to social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter).
  • Preparation of 8 different video clips and uploading them to social media channels. Each video was prepared for posting on Facebook with 32 language subtitles, on Twitter with embedded English subtitles and a maximum length of 2 minutes and 20 seconds, and on Instagram and TikTok at 9:16 format with embedded English subtitles.
  • Preparation of 8 article posts for our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) along with introductions.

All of this hard work is made possible by your continuing generous support. Together, we shall “Make the Ageless Wisdom of Tibet Available to All.”
