Enlightening Mind Publications

Publishing and Translation Department of FPMT Mongolia

Since the political climate changed in 1990, an increasing number of Mongolian students are endeavoring to read and study Dharma texts in their native language. Many of the old Buddhist texts that survived the purges were either in Tibetan or in the original Mongolian script. This script is difficult for many modern day Mongolians to understand as it was replaced by a new alphabet during the time of the Communist occupation.

There is an urgent need to print Dharma books, especially in modern Mongolian language that our youth can relate to and understand. People are becoming more interested in their traditional religion but are having difficulty in finding literature that clearly explains the Dharma.

To help address this need, FPMT Mongolia established a Publishing Department to translate and publish Dharma texts and practice booklets in modern Mongolian. Translation works commenced and in October 2004, the Publishing and Translation Department of FPMT Mongolia officially formed. Subsequently in October 2010, Lama Zopa Rinpoche kindly gave the Department the name, “Enlightening Mind”.

EM has translated and published books of teachings by His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Lama Thubten Yeshe, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, Kunu Rinpoche etc. Since 2001, more than 175’000 copies of these books have been distributed to the people of Mongolia for free or, for an amount to simply cover the printing cost. Several of these were sent to the countryside, especially to the monasteries, many of which are newly established and have a lack of study materials and library books.
