Launched on May the 4th, the anniversary date of Kalu Dorje Chang's 25th parinirvana, the resource center is a Shangpa Network initiative for the development of the lineage’s online database and archives.

This collaborative project opens the way for sharing and preserving authentic and quality Shangpa Kagyu documentation. The site is still under construction, however you can already browse through its main functions. The content is meant to increase and develop progressively over the coming months.

The site is open to all, however some contents have a restricted access. There are four access levels: public, students, lamas and vajracarya. See Registration and access rights.


The "Dzamling Dragyur Kunchab", the Kalu Rinpoche translation group founded by Vajradhara contributes to the resource center with multilingual translations. Translations may also be submitted to us to add to the database. Submit a translation

The launching of the site is a dana from the Shangpa Network but the substantial task of developing it will only be achieved with your contributions and support. Translators and lamas can offer their translations and benefactors in general can offer their documents: relevant articles, photos and images, videos, and so on.

If you find the site useful and worthwhile please help us continue by making a donation (Paypal will soon be available).

A Shangpa Network film crew went on a journey last June to meet some of the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism living in India. Their mission was to gather photos and testimonies, precious material for the projects to honor our root master Vajradhara Kalu Rinpoche.

These projects are a film and a book about Vajradhara Kalu Rinpoche's life and enlightened actions.

See the photo report of the film crew's travels and interviews here !

More interviews are underway with other masters and people who have known Kalu Dorje Chang, we thank everybody from the bottom of our hearts for their kind cooperation. 

Currently there is a worldwide search for archive documents related to Kalu Dorje Chang. Videos,
