Free Dhamma books shipped to you

Postby Tex » Sun Jan 25, 2009 9:28 pm

Apologies if this has already been posted here, I looked around and didn't see anything on it.

The link at the bottom offers a selection of books including quite a few Theravada books. They will ship them free of charge (they do of course accept donations).

They have an online order form, if you fill it out and copy/paste it into an e-mail you should hear back quickly. I had an e-mail confirmation within three days and the books arrived about 2 1/2 months later -- they sent all five that I requested and six other Theravada selections.

Also, the list of available titles changes, you might want to bookmark it and check in with them periodically.

Happy reading...

Thanks for the link!

Hello all,
I placed my online order last week and I haven't heard back from them. I'll wait a bit longer and see what happens. If nothing, then I hear most of those titles can actually be found free online. So I'll do some searches and see what I come up with.

Hello Dhammakid, I placed my order last summer so perhaps they're just backlogged at the moment.

Also, I wrote to Metta Forest Monastery (address, among others, in this link) to request a copy of Thanissaro Bhikkhu's The Wings to Awakening and received that book, Meditations, and four others, and since they're here in the States I had the books within only a couple of weeks: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/outsources/books.html

I have some time on my hands this evening, I'll see what others I can dig up...

Found another, haven't used this service yet so I can't comment, but they seem to have a tremendous selection. Note that they do ask for reimbursement of postage:
