Sharing Our Publications

Can I post your publications on my website? Can I print and distribute your publications?

Our publications are offered freely to anyone to download, read, and enjoy, but they are still subject to copyright and are not in the public domain. If you would like to post our publications to your website, we ask that you contact us and seek permission, do not modify them in any way, and retain the copyright and other notices at the beginning of each publication.

We ask that you do not use the files offered on this website to print and distribute your own copies of our publications. If you would like to support our efforts to translate, print, and distribute Buddhist texts, please consider donating.

Can I sell your publications, or include them as part of a collection that is for sale?

No. Our publications are funded through donations, and are offered as a gift of Dharma for those seeking to learn more about Buddhism. They should never be sold.

Requesting Our Publications

Where can I find printed copies of your publications?

You can find select titles through some of our partner temples and organizations. Please see our list of partners for contact information to learn what titles they offer. If you live in the United States, you can also request publications through this website by clicking on any individual title and clicking “Submit Request.” All of our publications are shipped via US Postal Service Media Mail, and will be delivered within ten business days.

Can I request publications for my temple / student group / organization?

Yes. For groups and other large requests, please contact us.

When will you reprint your publications?

While electronic editions of all of our publications are available to read online at any time, we occasionally run out of print copies of our more popular publications. If you would like to request copies of one of our publications, and it is out of print, please let us know. Your feedback helps us gauge and modify our print runs, and we will notify you once that publication becomes available again.

Does FGSITC ship outside the United States?

Generally, no. Shipping our publications outside the United States is very expensive.
