Free Book Services

Post by ylee111 » Tue Jan 28, 2014 4:06 am

Similar to Christian free Bible services, it seems the Bukkyo Dendo Kyokai (BDK), which prints Numata Editions sends copies of their Shin Buddhism oriented book, The Teaching of Buddha for only the cost of shipping. See here:

Basically, although it is not ecologically sound, are there other organizations that send mostly free print Buddhism books (particularly East Asian Mahayana) located in the United States?

Distrust everyone in whom the impulse to punish is powerful!

There is also The Corporate Body of the Buddha Foundation that is based in Taiwan. They ship books all over the world but it takes them a while to do so.

There is also the Amitabha Buddhist Society. There are various of these in the USA and elsewhere in the world. Try to look for one in your country online.
Namo Amitabha
Namo Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva
Namo Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva

May I continue to practice loving-kindness and compassion for sentient beings. May my friends and loved ones be free from suffering. May those who have hurt me also be free from suffering.

Hatred is like throwing cow dung at someone else. You get dirty first before throwing it to someone else.
