UWest Professor Dr. William Chu has been given $50,000 for a research project by the Bukkhyo Dendo Kyokai (BDK) which is funding the translation of the entire Chinese Buddhist canon.
This project involves translating 20 additional fascicles of the Fayuan zhulin. Previously, Dr. Chu has already contributed to the translation of 20 fascicles of the same text that amounted to over a thousand printed pages of translation, and will make him the translator of close to half of the voluminous pre-modern Buddhist encyclopedia.
