Staffs in the Sera Monastery's sutra-printing house referred to the sponsored woodblocks, produced new woodblock models and have printed 18 collections of Tibetan Buddhist canons so far.
Supported by local Culture Bureau and authorities, the Sera Monastery's sutra-printing house has sorted out and printed a series of works written by Tibetan Buddhist masters, most of which are used as textbooks for monks.
Apart from being reprinted on papers through traditional means of woodblock printing, the canons were also scanned and stored in digital form on compact disc.【1】 【2】 【3】 【4】 【5】 【6】 【7】
