Adopt a Book

When China invaded Tibet in 1959 they burned all the Tibetan books and art they could find.  So many books were burned that the fires lasted for months.

Today the remaining Tibetan books and art are those items smuggled out by refugees as they fled over the snowy mountain passes.   These items are essential to the Tibetan culture and way of life that has been destroyed in their homeland.

Dharma Publishing and their supporters are doing their best to obtain copies of these ancient texts and art objects to reproduce them for distribution to Tibetan libraries around the world.  Will you help us?

This is interesting, and worth a visit!
