Books & Publications
The Gaden Phodrang Foundation of the Dalai Lama manages and coordinates in close cooperation with the Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama copyright-related matters for books and other publications authored and co-authored by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
By assigning rights, title and interest in His writings and other publications, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has graciously donated all royalties from these publications to the Gaden Phodrang Foundation of the Dalai Lama. The royalties are one of the major income sources for the foundation’s fund.
The Foundation also commissions major translations throughout the world, which are in the context of preservation of Tibetan Buddhist culture, science and philosophy.
