About Us

The Fo Guang Shan International Translation Center is dedicated to translating and distributing quality translations of classical Buddhist texts as well as works by contemporary Buddhist teachers and scholars. We embrace Humanistic Buddhism and promote Buddhist writing that is accessible, community oriented, and relevant to daily life. You can browse all of our publications, read them online, and even download them for FREE, as well as request printed copies for you or your organization.

We offer a small selection of books and booklets translated into French and Vietnamese, many of which are available to read online, download, and request as well.

Since 2023, we’ve partnered with the AJ Wang Foundation to offer the Buddhism Friendship Scholarship, which accepts new students every fall.
