The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University is pleased to announce
the fifth competition for the Stanley Weinstein Dissertation Prize, honoring
Professor Weinstein’s many contributions to the study of East Asian Buddhism in
North America. The prize will be awarded once every two years to the best
Ph.D. dissertation on East Asian Buddhism written in North America during the
two previous years. The dissertation must be based on original research

translations of the Buddhist scriptures as their basis (Chinese, Japanese,
Korean, and Vietnamese). Studies of East Asian Buddhist communities in
the West are not eligible for consideration.
The recipient of the award will be invited to give a public lecture at Yale
under the auspices of the Council of East Asian Studies. There is an
honorarium of $1,000.

We are pleased to announce the first release of a significant new
publication effort: Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Taye’s Treasury of Precious
Instructions (gDams ngag rin po che’i mdzod).
For the Tibetologists on this list, this needs little introduction, but in
brief, this is an 18 volume work on the eight lineages of accomplishment, one
model for the classifications of practice traditions in Tibet.
This collection was compiled in a roughly chronological order:
- Nyingma - Two Volumes (876 pages)
- Kadampa Tradition - Two Volumes (1190 pages)
- Sakya Path & Result - Two Volumes (930 pages)
- Marpa Kagyu - Four Volumes (1567 pages)
- Shangpa Kagyu - Two Volumes (1304 pages)
- Pacification & Severance - Two Volumes (900 pages)
- Kalacakra & Orgyen Nyendrup - One Volume (626 pages)
- Miscellaneous Teachings - Two Volumes (1088 pages)
- Jonang Tradition & Catalog - One Volume (630 pages)
We are publishing the volumes asynchronously and releases will spread
out over the next few years.
The first volume has just arrived from the printer which is Volume 14,
Chöd: The Sacred Teachings on Severance. Introduced and translated by
Sarah Harding (Naropa University), this contains 29 selections which include
source scriptures and commentaries, instuctions, guides and more from a variety
of authors including Machik Lapdrön, Aryadeva (the Brahmin, not the
Nagarjuna disciple), Rangjung Dorje, Tāranātha, Karma Chakme,
Kongtrul himself, and many more.
We are grateful to the Tsadra Foundation whose generous support of the
translators and publication make this possible.

recent newsletter cataloging the 35 books we released (or soon will) in 2016
