The Hopkins Tibetan Treasures Multimedia Research Archive is a digital resource freely available across the internet for scholars seeking oral commentary to compliment their textual research into Tibetan Buddhism. The Hopkins Archive has as its basis the magnetic tape collection of the many important oral teachings given to Jeffrey Hopkins by a cadre of the best-educated Tibetan Lamas of the Twentieth century. Professor Hopkins (Emeritus, University of Virginia), a leading scholar of Tibetan Buddhism, was one of the first Americans to master both the literary and colloquial aspects of the Tibetan language.
The magnetic archive consists of over three thousand hours of authentic oral transmission on many scholarly and cultural aspects of Tibetan Buddhism. The digital archive (after its first two years) consists of 1305 files with 197.8 gigabytes and total duration of197 hours. It includes teachings of both the old and new translation schools and virtually all traditional Buddhist philosophical topics, exoteric and esoteric, not to mention ancillary topics such as Tibetan history, medicine, and so forth. The Hopkins Archive features a wide range of oral commentary by the Fourteenth Dalai Lama and twenty-four other eminent Lamas of the generation trained in Tibet during the 1940’s and 1950’s.
