REMINDER> 5th Competition for the Stanley Weinstein Dissertation Prize

by Nicholas Disantis
The Council on East Asian Studies at Yale University is pleased to announce the fifth competition for the Stanley Weinstein Dissertation Prize, honoring Professor Weinstein’s many contributions to the study of East Asian Buddhism in North America.  The prize will be awarded once every two years to the best Ph.D. dissertation on East Asian Buddhism written in North America during the two previous years.  The dissertation must be based on original research in the primary languages and should significantly advance our understanding of East Asian Buddhism.  East Asian Buddhism is understood for this competition to refer to those traditions in East Asia that take Chinese translations of the Buddhist scriptures as their basis (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese).  Studies of East Asian Buddhist communities in the West are not eligible for consideration.
The recipient of the award will be invited to give a public lecture at Yale under the auspices of the Council of East Asian Studies.  There is an honorarium of $1,000.
Ph.D. programs in Buddhist Studies/Religious Studies in North America are invited to nominate one dissertation that was completed during the academic years 2014-2015 and 2015-16.*
The deadline for this nomination is December 31, 2016.  The nomination must be accompanied by a letter of recommendation, readers’ reports for the thesis, and one representative chapter of the thesis.  All materials should be sent electronically (PDF format) to
A three-person committee will select three theses to be read in their entirety by all committee members.  The authors of these three theses will be requested to submit the entire theses in PDF format for this final stage of the selection.
The result of the competition will be announced by the beginning of the next academic year.

New Series/Book> Kongtrul's Treasury of Precious Instructions

by Nikko Odiseos
Dear Friends,
We are pleased to announce the first release of a significant new publication effort: Jamgön Kongtrul Lodrö Taye’s Treasury of Precious Instructions (gDams ngag rin po che’i mdzod).
For the Tibetologists on this list, this needs little introduction, but in brief, this is an 18 volume work on the eight lineages of accomplishment, one model for the classifications of practice traditions in Tibet.
This collection was compiled in a roughly chronological order:
-  Nyingma - Two Volumes (876 pages)
-  Kadampa Tradition - Two Volumes (1190 pages)
-  Sakya Path & Result - Two Volumes (930 pages)
-  Marpa Kagyu - Four Volumes (1567 pages)
-  Shangpa Kagyu - Two Volumes (1304 pages)
-  Pacification & Severance - Two Volumes (900 pages)
-  Kalacakra & Orgyen Nyendrup - One Volume (626 pages)
-  Miscellaneous Teachings - Two Volumes (1088 pages)
-  Jonang Tradition & Catalog - One Volume (630 pages)
We are publishing the volumes asynchronously and releases will spread out over the next few years.
The first volume has just arrived from the printer which is Volume 14, Chöd: The Sacred Teachings on Severance.  Introduced and translated by Sarah Harding (Naropa University), this contains 29 selections which include source scriptures and commentaries, instuctions, guides and more from a variety of authors including Machik Lapdrön, Aryadeva (the Brahmin, not the Nagarjuna disciple), Rangjung Dorje, Tāranātha, Karma Chakme, Kongtrul himself, and many more.
We are grateful to the Tsadra Foundation whose generous support of the translators and publication make this possible.
The link below will take you to to the entry for this volume in our recent newsletter cataloging the 35 books we released (or soon will) in 2016 that relate to Tibetan Buddhism.  We will have this, and all books in the link below at AAR in San Antonio next month so please come by and have a look.  Also, desk and exam copies can be requested from Penguin Random House, our global distributor at
