RESTORATION DEPARTMENT

Restoration Department was established as an independent wing of the Research Department to restore ancient Indian science and literature preserved in Tibetan language, into original Sanskrit. It is not only aimed at restoring the texts for research purpose, but also to revive a lost Indian culture into its original form. The top priority is given to important works of Acharya Nagarjuna, Aryadeva, Shantarakshita, Kamalashila, and Atisha and so on. To restore a text into Sanskrit, the scholars of this department work in collaboration with Indian Scholars of Sanskrit experts. This is a well-known tradition coming down from 9th century in Tibet. It was compulsory for a Tibetan translator to work with an Indian Pandit as a subject expert. Abiding with that tradition, this department is also working with Indian scholars who are well versed both in Sanskrit as well as in Buddhist Philosophy. Till date the University has published more than 77 important titles in the form of restorations, translations and critical editions. A few of the works of this department have received U.P. Sanskrit Academy awards.
