We have a wide selection of

  • Buddhist books
  • Full-color practice booklets
  • music & audio teachings
  • full-color posters of Buddhas
  • incense

We make an effort to carry the books you need to support your study of the Buddhist teachings.

At the Bookshop you will find a range of beautiful offering items and incense for your altar and meditation space.

Shopping in the Bookshop is a wonderful way to enrich your own study and practice as well as support the Dharma and building of holy objects (stupas, prayer wheels, etc.) at DCI.
