Welcome to the Asian Legacy Library
The Asian Legacy Library was created 33 years ago in the US with a grant from the Hewlett Packard Foundation. ALL was founded to preserve the timeless cultural wisdom heritage, central to many Asian cultures, much of which is located in extreme locations and in danger of decay.
And thanks to countless supporters over three decades, we have been successful!
ALL now has 5 preservation centers located in Mongolia, India, and Nepal. These centers digitize and catalog the cultural wisdom heritage of China, India, Nepal and Mongolia. Projects currently include a massive collection of Buddhist manuscripts in Tibetan language and several large collections of yogic manuscripts in Sanskrit.
Our operations are funded by an enthusiastic global patron base on 5 continents. Some of them have partnered with us from the outset, and others have come to us more recently. In both cases, the understanding and passion for supporting ALL is undeniable and provides a sustaining, resilient foundation.
Our focus is educating global entrepreneurs on the benefits of philanthropy and preserving their cultural legacy for future generations.
