CIRDIS, among other activities, will cooperate with Prof. Ramble one the Project "Rituals of the Bon Religion: Texts and Performances":

The aim of this project is to make available online a selection of ritual texts of the Bon religion, together with video footage of performances of these rituals. The texts will be presented as photographed images, as well as Tibetan dbu-can and searchable romanised transcriptions. English-language translations of the texts will also be provided. It is hoped that the video recordings of the performances will carry Tibetan subtitles with English translations.
