ACIP - Asian Classics Input Project

managed by Nour Ibrahim

About us

Founded in 1988 with a grant from the David and Lucile Packard foundation, The Asian Classics Input Project is dedicated to locating, cataloging, digitally preserving, and freely distributing rare and precious collections of Tibetan and Sanskrit manuscripts. These surviving texts hold the philosophical, cultural, and religious heritage of Asian traditions dating back more than 2500 years.

ACIP strives to digitally preserve these invaluable manuscripts, which hold the great ideas of Indo-Tibetan civilization as well as the Yoga and Ayurveda traditions of ancient India because we believe that authentic ancient wisdom should be available to scholars, translators, and practitioners throughout the world, free of charge.

This organisation cooperates with the Maecenata Foundation:
