We have an increasing range of books available both for study on the premises and to be taken out on loan.
Until recently these were not formally catalogued but we are currently in the process of setting up a database to simplify research by subject.
A complete set of Theravada Buddhist texts in English is also available. These are not to be taken out of the library but you are welcome to come in and study them at the Vihara.
Also available on loan are a number of scholastic and meditation books suitable to both practitioners and students.
We would welcome the donation of books in good condition on subjects such as all schools of Buddhism, other world religions, philosophy, psychology and health.
