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).
Translations of the Shōbōgenzō previously appearing on this site can be found in the Soto Zen journal Dharma Eye, beginning with issue number 9 (October 2001). Available online at this site.
The SZTP translation of the Soto School Scriptures for Daily Services and Practice (Sōtōshu nikka gongyō seiten) is available online at this site.
For information on how to purchase the SZTP translation of the Standard Observances of the Soto Zen School (Sōtōshū gyōji kihan), contact the Soto Zen Buddhism International Center at: email@example.com
Other inquiries about SZTP and its translations should be directed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please do not direct inquiries to the Ho Center for Buddhist Studies at Stanford.
The Oral History of Tibetan Studies Project
This project seeks to record and collect oral memories of those who have contributed to the establishment of Tibetan and Himalayan Studies as a recognized independent academic discipline. Through interview recordings the projects explore two aspects: the development of the discipline itself and the distinctive life-stories of the individuals involved. HCBSS is co-sponsoring this project which is run by a small group of Ph.D. students in Europe and the U.S.A. One of our doctoral students, Elaine Lai, is an initiator and interviewer of the project.
