Founded by Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche over 40 years ago, Dharma Publishing’s mission is to contribute to the Western understanding of mind and to preserve Tibetan Buddhist teachings and Tibetan culture. Proceeds from our efforts support the Yeshe De Text Preservation Project, which produces sacred Buddhist texts to be given away free of charge to monks, nuns, monasteries, and lay practitioners at the annual World Peace Ceremony in Bodh Gaya India.
Currently we publish over 125 books in English covering a diverse range of topics. Our current catalog includes translations of sutras and commentaries by great masters, books on Kum Nye Tibetan Yoga, meditation, Buddhist history and teachings, as well as a series of children’s books called Jataka Tales. Our books have been adopted for college level courses in Buddhist studies, translated into a number of languages, and continue to serve as invaluable resources for scholars and spiritual seekers all over the world.
One way to view working at Dharma Publishing is through 4 important aspects of the Skillful Means teachings:
1) Challenge your abilities
2) Overcome obstacles
3) Transform resistance and negativity
4) Offer inspiration through creative accomplishment
Volunteers are called on to genuinely take responsibility. In opening our minds to knowledge, we can discover a new form of responsibility, a form not based on obligation or burden. Responsibility founded on true knowledge is the freedom to respond to anything effectively and wholeheartedly.
Work at Dharma Publishing is variable and challenging. As a publisher in the 21st century, our industry is in the midst of a sea change and opportunities abound for innovative thinking, creative problem solving, and leadership. Our volunteers are encouraged to follow their interests and discover the unique ways they can contribute to Dharma Publishing’s success.
