Get Involved

Adopt a Book offers individuals, organizations and corporations the opportunity to participate in this wholesome cause.

The production cost per volume (eight thousand copies, with 700 to 900 pages) amounts to $32,500. This is only the cost of paper and ink; all labor is incurred entirely by volunteers.

Thus, every financial contribution to Dharma Publishing will directly fund the production of the Tibetan books.

... if the donor dedicates the gift to the benefit of an organization, a good cause, or a loved one, that spirit continues to live in time and space.

According to the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, participation in a meaningful cause produces positive karma. This good karma will benefit the donator, and if the donator dedicates the gift to the benefit of an organization, a good cause, or a loved one, that spirit continues to live in time and space.

Dedication of a book to, for instance, one’s parents can ease their path into their next life. During the World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya, the names of the beneficiaries are read aloud. Hence, your donation will not only benefit the Tibetans who receive these precious books, but also enrich your life and the lives of your loved ones.
