The site began in 2004 with just a handful of translations in English, but has since grown into a large repository containing more than 2500 texts in nine different languages, including the original sources.
The vast majority of texts on the site were suggested for inclusion by Tibetan lamas and expert scholars, many of whom also kindly offered their help and advice in the translation process. This collaboration between translators and native experts is modelled upon the ancient partnerships of lotsāwas and paṇḍitas, which proved so effective when the Buddhist canon was first translated into Tibetan.
