The Taskforce 2009 wants you!

The Treasury of Wisdom will for a second time this winter host a special taskforce in order to transform the Treasury of Wisdom database into a well-organized research and archive platform.

We are looking for 6 volunteers to help this project which will be crucial for Rinpoche's work of spreading the teachings in the West. The Treasury of Wisdom is the basis of almost all teaching-related projects in Rigpa like the Homeretreat, courses, Rigpalinks,

If you have some time this Winter and want to join our team in an exciting group effort to make the work of thousands of transcribers, teaching report writers, video and sound people available for research to Rigpa researchers, then please send an email to

ToW_admin@zamstore.com.
