Library Facilities

NNI has its own Library containing almost every Tibetan work and major Buddhist scriptures for both class and referential uses. The Head Librarian and his staff manage the Library. Every year the Library brings out new publications of textbooks taught in the curriculum. Students can borrow most of their textbooks from the Library, nevertheless it is much better if students can get their own set of books taught in the syllabus as the Library doesn't have enough texts for the whole class.

Editorial Committee

The Editorial Committee of the Institute is made up of two separate boards. The Advisory Board, consisting of elder Khenpos chaired by H.H. Penor Rinpoche, gives counsel to the Board of Editors. A few Khenpos, lecturers, assistant teachers and students with outstanding performance constitute this Board. The members of the Board of Editors change almost every year and each group publishes a new work on various subjects under the label "Ngagyur Rigzöth Editions". Since its initiation in 1992, the Board has brought out three new books on Nyingma History, Vinaya precepts and Padmasambhava's Biography.

Printing Works & Facilities

NNI has it own printing materials. The new Press run by a group of our own members was formed in 1993 in order to publish some rare and important texts in the syllabus. The first publication is already out and further printed works shall be coming out soon. In addition to the linotype block printing facilities, the Institute also owns a group of computers. Several monks are learning different computer programs under the guidance of Tulku Ajam and Ngedon Rinpoche. Many books have been published using computer typesetting and laser printer in the past years and more works are being produced.
