Monlam Grand Tibetan Dictionary

NK Praha, Dharamsala, 2022, 1st edition, 223 volumes

Monlam Grand Tibetan Dictionary is an explanatory dictionary, compiled in the Monlam Tibetan IT Research Centre. It is the result of more than nine-year hard work of more than 200 persons. With more than 200,000 entries in 223 volumes it is a very important work for the Tibetan community. Its main objective is to help preserve Tibetan as a living language. The dictionary was launched by His Holiness the Dalai Lama at the Main Tibetan Temple in Dharamsala on 27 May, 2022.

National Library of the CR received the dictionary as a book donation from the Tibetan Government-in-exile. The donation ceremony took place at the Klementinum in the presence of Minister of Culture of the CR Martin Baxa on 30 August, 2022. The NL general director Tomáš Foltýn received the dictionary from the hands of Sikyong Penpa Tsering, chairman of the Central Tibetan Administration.
