Written by the Editors

Whether it’s about finding new (Buddhist) books, audiofiles of Dhamma-talks, translations of sutta’s, or discussions and questions on a forum, we highly recommend the following websites.

For ordering Buddhist Books:

  • Buddhist Publishing Society (BPS) – The BPS is a Sri Lanka based publishing house founded by Nyanaponika Mahathera. After his resignation Bhikkhu Bodhi was at the helm for a long time. The BPS publishes works by, for example, Nyanaponika Thera, Nyanatiloka Thera, Bhikkhu Bodhi, Piyadassi Thera, Bhikkhu Ñanamoli, Narada Mahathera, Mahasi Sayadaw and Ledi Sayadaw. The costs are often low and it is very worthwhile to browse through the available texts.
  • Pali Text Society – The Pali Text Society was founded in 1881 by the translator T.W. Rhys Davids to promote the knowledge of Pali. It is now a leading association with several professors on the board from all over the world. Through the Pali Text Society the entire English translation of the Tipitaka can be obtained.

Tipitaka Translations, Explanations and Dhamma Talks:

  • Suttacentral – A fantastic website with lots of translations of sutta’s (among others from Bhikkhu Bodhi) with an intuitive menu. One of the best Buddhist sites on the web.
