DISTRIBUTE MERIT AND HELP IDP - SPONSOR A SUTRA
Just as donors in the past paid a scribe to copy Buddhist texts in memory of loved ones or to distribute merit to the world, IDP's Sponsor a Sutra Scheme enables anyone today to support the digitization of a favourite sutra and add your dedicatory message. This will be added below the image on the database, just as donor names and messages previously appeared at the end of manuscripts and at the bottom of paintings. You can Sponsor a Sutra from as little as ￡35 (US$50): the cost depends on the length of the sutra. All funds go directly to the work of IDP.
I WISH TO SPONSOR A SUTRA AND HELP MAKE MORE MANUSCRIPTS AVAILABLE ON THE WEB
STEP 1. On selecting a price range the database will be searched for suitable manuscripts for sponsorship. Once selected the list will appear below.
Sponsorship starts at ￡35 (US$50) for a short text requiring only one shot and increases depending on the number of shots required to digitise the whole text at ￡15 per additional shot.
STEP 2. Select a Sutra or other Text from the list below and then click the (Step 3) button at the bottom of the page.
The list changes from week to week so please keep looking if you do not immediately find anything you like. For a donation of ￡500 or more you can specify a title, language or area of interest. We will then compile a list of suitable sutras/texts for digitisation from which you can make your choice. Please note that this process can take some time and we are not always able to satisfy specific requests. If you wish to do this please simply email IDP.
Note: you can only select one manuscript at a time. If you wish to sponsor more than one sutra then return to this page once payment has been made.
