ACIP: The Release is a Go!

One of the most exciting happenings this term at DM has been the Enlightenment Management course and its corresponding project. In an attempt to incorporate principals of karma and emptiness to business much of Diamond Mountain became a production machine. The task: the prepare and release 450,000 pages of digitized Buddhist wisdom. Oh, and to make sure it is all freely available to the world at no cost.

Unleashing these searchable texts has been the sole purpose of the Asian Classics Input Project (ACIP) for the past two decades. In honor of these 20 years we have all been a part of this huge undertaking, ACIP Release VI, which will be available on March 20th on DVD and from the internet. For the first time ACIP will be including not only Tibetan, but English translations as well, expanding the audience from just Tibetan scholars to any English speaker interested in these precious books.

The official release will be followed by a proper ACIP Release party in New York City on March 23rd.
