DHARAMSHALA, Nov. 13: The foremost repository of Tibetan literature and Buddhist studies, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives (LTWA), is set to further push their initiative to bridge Buddhism and science with the opening of the ‘Sager Science Center’ here today.

The new branch of the ‘Sager Science Center’ at Dharamshala like the seven other centers established across India by the Sager Science Leadership Institute funds and assists scholarly study and training primarily for monastics to be leaders of science education, leaders of the monastic science centers, and active participants in the monastics communities rapidly expanding study of science and its correlation with hitherto established scientific knowledge.

American philanthropist and supporter of Tibetan movement, Bobby Sager and his family, along with Central Tibetan Administration’s Minister for Religion and Culture Ven. Karma Gelek Yuthok, LTWA Director Geshe Lhakdor and students attended the inauguration ceremony at LTWA in Gangchen Kyishong.

Minister Yuthok regarded the role of LTWA in the furtherance of Science and Buddhism in accordance with the vision of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as a crucial and one which espouses to bear dividends for both science and Buddhism, to achieve physical and mental wellbeing.

While acknowledging the contribution of science in providing comfort and advances in the material sense, he remarked that only spirituality could promote emotional wellbeing, which he said was the more important among the two. The collaboration of two in a holistic way can bring about genuine gains for the world, he said in his address.

The Library of Tibetan Works & Archives (Tibetan Library) monastic science initiative first began back in 1999 during the time of its former director, Achok Rinpoche.

In the year 2001, the Sager Family Foundation formed an alliance with LTWA to further push the pursuit of the Library’s historic undertaking – Science for Monks. Since 2001, Science for Monks has brought Western scientists to India to implement workshops designed to share salient concepts of Western science with Tibetan monastics in exile.
