Thank you for your interest in contributing to the Sera Project. Scholarly materials related to any aspect of Sera life are solicited. These can take several forms:
- Information/data related to Sera (historical, ethnographic, bibliographical, etc.)
- Editions and/or translations of Tibetan texts. Here, the project is especially interested in receiving submissions of ritual texts used in the Sera liturgical cycles. We require a copy of the Tibetan text for the purpose of evaluation, ideally as a digital text in Wylie format, but we can help with text input if necessary. If you are interested in contributing funds toward our existing translation projects, please contact José Ignacio Cabezón , the Sera Project director.
- Scholarly essays. These can consist of simple text, or they can incorporate a variety of digital media. All essays undergo peer review, and are accredited scholarly, digital publications. Contributors should feel free to contact the project director for initial feedback regarding possible contributions.
- Archival materials, especially photos of monks or of the monastery taken before 1959, as well as documents from this period, are especially solicited.
The Sera Project also solicits information regarding other websites that have a substantive relationship to Sera, which will be evaluated as possible links. At the present time, we are especially interested in documenting the global impact of Sera by gathering more information related to the institutions (Dharma centers, monasteries, etc.) that have been created by Sera monks throughout the world. If your institution was founded by, or is under the direction of, a Sera monk, contact us () with a link to your website.
