HCBSS Research Projects
HCBSS currently supports four ongoing research projects:
Buddhist Manuscript Project
This project will provide a varied set of opportunities for scholars to explore the texts, teachings, and history, of the Mahāparinirvāṇa-sūtra. The first workshop of the project was held at Stanford during summer 2008. A second workshop took place at Munich in summer 2010.

Sōtō Zen Text Project
The website for this project has been closed by the Soto Zen Text Project, as we revise our translations in preparation for the project’s forthcoming publications of the Denkō roku (2017) and Shōbōgenzō (2020).
The SZTP translation of the Soto School Scriptures for Daily Services and Practice (Sōtōshu nikka gongyō seiten) is also available online.
For information on purchasing the SZTP translation of the Standard Observances of the Soto Zen School (Sōtōshū gyōji kihan), contact the Soto Zen Buddhism International Center at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Other inquiries about SZTP and its translations should be directed to: email@example.com.
Please do not direct inquiries to The Ho Center for Buddhist Studies at Stanford.
The Oral History of Tibetan Studies Project
This project records and collects oral memories from those who contributed to establishing Tibetan and Himalayan Studies as a recognized and independent academic discipline. The project explores two topics: the development of the discipline itself and the distinctive life-stories of the individuals involved. HCBSS co-sponsors the project, which is run by PhD students in Europe and the U.S.A. One of the Center’s doctoral students, Elaine Lai, is a founder of and interviewer for the project.
