General Buddhism

Founded in India by Siddhartha Gautama, Buddhism has thrived in the East for more than 2,500 years—and has been steadily gaining adherents in the West in the last century or so. While our catalog offers many dharma books that spring from specific lineages, such as Tibetan Kagyu or Japanese Soto Zen, the books you’ll find below offer a more general approach to the Buddhist view.
