The Urgyen Sangharakshita Trust is delighted to present this video launch of the online Triratna Picture Library. The video introduces the new website and celebrates with a precious few minutes in the company of Sangharakshita as he introduces photographs from his personal collection.

Right now the online library holds 1,500 images and over the coming weeks and months thousands more images will be added. It’s a slow process as each image has to be scanned, then repaired, dust and marks removed, catalogued, and relevant key words added before being given a title and description and uploaded on to the new website.

The original photographs, negatives and slides are then archived ready for long term storage and access in Urgyen House.

The Triratna Picture Library website has been built from scratch with the invaluable help of Dharmachakra. Any teething problems with the sophisticated filter system will gradually be ironed out but already the site works beautifully. We welcome useful information that can be added to the images wherever it is lacking or inaccurate.

This project has been joint funded by Future Dharma Fund and the Urgyen Sangharakshita Trust.

Wow, Moksapriya, well done! I skimmed through it: Well organised, beautifully done, great to have detailed info for the images. I was really missing having a place where to find our archive fotos. Thank you so much!
