Earlier texts had remained in manuscript form until that time. They organized the carving of woodblocks that would guarantee a wide distribution of the works and reduce the risk of their loss. gTsang smyon and his disciples did not confine themselves to printing the existing works, instead compiling, editing and writing many texts they committed to blocks. lHa btsun founded the small monastery of Brag dkar rta so that quickly became a famous printing house.
