Pariyatti USA is an educational nonprofit whose mission is disseminating the words of the Buddha, providing sustenance for the seeker's journey and illuminating the meditator's path.

In today's expensive world, Pariyatti USA's costs are rising. We work to keep our prices low, and our market is relatively small -- so we must rely on donations to bridge the gap between sales revenue and the high costs of publishing.

It is vital to encourage new memberships and to help generate broader support for Pariyatti USA. So please tell your friends about Pariyatti, and encourage them to become members and continue to donate if it is important to you that this wonderful repository of treasured dhamma resources can continue to serve us all.

Why support Pariyatti USA?

Our core mission is to enrich the world by making available the teachings of Gotama the Buddha. Pariyatti's books, audio and video titles, and outreach programs help people on the path to freedom from suffering. People from all walks of life around the world receive support and sustenance from Pariyatti's activities.

Pariyatti USA is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization, largely dependent on donations to support our publications and programs. We must build a broader base of support in order to continue distributing, selling and donating materials from one of the world's most complete collections of Buddhist teachings.
