Dear supporters and friends,
My name is Andreas Ansmann. I am head of Tibethaus Publishing and responsible for the translation project "The 14th Dalai Lama - The Fundamental Views". I would like to inform you about the latest developments and give you a small insight into my work.
From the very beginning I was entrusted to supervise the translation project of these two outstanding volumes. The complexity of this task became clear to me only gradually.
In the course of time, I have had the opportunity to work with many competent translators, publishers, editors and lawyers and have come to know and appreciate their work much better. This has greatly broadened my horizon. It is also a great pleasure to work closely with the Gaden Phodrang Foundation of the Dalai Lama on this project.
The Ganden Phodrang Foundation of the Dalai Lama and Tibet House Germany are the initiators of the publication in the different languages.
But now a few facts:
- The translations into English and German are in full progress.
- The contracts with two excellent publishers - English and German - are about to be signed. Hopefully we will be able soon to officially announce the names of both publishers.
- We are planning to publish jointly with both publishers for the 2022 Book Fair and are confident that we will be able to keep to this schedule.
- We were able to win Franziska Örtle, a very competent expert for Tibetan, English and German, as editor. She will fully review and compare the English, German and Tibetan translations before they are submitted to the publishers.
- The titles for the two volumes of the English edition have been determined:
Vol 1: The Fundamental Views: Guidance for the World Today
Vol 2: The Fundamental Views: Guidance for the Buddhist Path from the Great Fifth Dalai Lama
All these project activities are only possible with your support. Thank you very much on behalf of Tibethaus Germany and the Tibethaus Cultural Foundation. Your donation will be forwarded to the Tibethaus Kulturstiftung, which is responsible for the financing of this project.
Until soon and with best regards
(Head of Tibethaus Publishing)
