"A Thousand Books of Wisdom" is the fourth major release of Tibetan data by the Asian Classics Input Project. The core of the entire Asian Classics Input Project consists of a dedicated group of Tibetan refugees in south Asia who are accomplishing the great majority of the Project’s work: the input of tens of thousands of pages of Tibetan woodblock prints, in the hope to save the disappearing Tibtan books. First they search the globe for the remaining collections of books and record their location and contents in catalog form (i.e. the St. Petersburg Catalog); next they copy the books in e-text format and send these copies to be input onto computer media at data entry centers. Over the past ten years ACIP has released tens of thousands of pages of great books, on tens of thousands of computer disks and through the World Wide Web, completely free. Nearly all texts RTF format (in Tibetan script and romanization) can be freely accessed, both requesting them on disk (order infos) or downloading them from the site. Beware that only a few a number of the items in the ACIP database are restricted and do not appear in the public releases (in respect of the centuries-old tradition of the Buddhist lineages of Tibet and India, and in particular out of respect for the current holders of these lineages who work closely with ACIP in locating and preserving these materials, ACIP has a policy of not releasing to the general public those texts which are by tradition considered secret; users who have received the necessary initiations to study these materials may however submit a request). Please notice the that Sambotha fonts with the ACIP encoding for Tibetan are freely downloadable from the Nitharta site. [2001 May 1].
