For over three decades, Wisdom Publications has been committed to publishing contemporary and classic Buddhist books. As the leading ecumenical and nonprofit publisher in this field, publishing everything from His Holiness the Dalai Lama's works to the classic "Mindfulness in Plain English," we have made it our mission to:
- help cultivate and share the phenomenal and multifaceted resource of Buddhism, enriching the world by preserving and sharing the wise, compassionate, and profound teachings of Buddhism and mindfulness
- advance critical scholarship, nurture communities of authors and readers, and
- preserve Buddhist literary culture.
We are committed to providing readers with polished, thoughtful, and carefully-chosen works, available at reasonable prices. We also donate many books each year to schools, prisoners, sanghas, and libraries, and all our profits are invested back into the creation of new works.
We recently had a new website built (www.wisdompubs.org), where we now offer thousands of pages of free content from our books available to read online, as well as direct and instantaneous ebooks for sale.
We have already raised $5,000 this fall, and hope to raise $5,000 more by December 31st so we can continue developing and improving our new website, and fulfilling the work of our mission.
