About us

Theravada Tipitaka Press

Theravada Tipitaka Press is a small independent non-profit book publishing company which focuses on early Buddhist P?li literature. 

Our main interest are texts which focus on research into Buddhist meditation practice (samath? and vipassan?). At the same time we try to provide better tools for the study of P?li and thus help others in gaining a deeper understanding of the original word of the Buddha.
Our main concern is twofold: We believe that a broader and deeper understanding of the message of the Buddha can only come about if that message is available - not necessarily in quantity but foremost in quality. You will not find many books in our catalog. But the ones you find were hand-picked. Secondly we especially encourage authors who have personal meditation experience combined with enough compassion and and patience to share their understanding of early Buddhist Dhamma and Bh?van?.

Being a non-profit operation all our proceeds benefit the efforts of the Nibbana Meditation Association & Mahamevnawa Meditation Monastery Florida both of which are examplary organizations promoting the deep understanding and devout practice of the Buddha's eightfold path. The Nibbana Meditation Association propagates the teaching of meditation in the tradition of the most Venerable Meditation Master Sri Matara Nyanarama Mahatthera, head of the Sri Lankan forest hermitage Nissarana Vanaya in Meetirigala. If you like to learn more about them please follow these links:

Your purchase allows us to give a twofold gift of Dhamma. It gives us the opportunity to provide you with Dhamma books while at the same time enabling us to support a dedicated effort to teach jh?na and vipassan? through the NMA. We therefore feel very much indebted to anyone interested in our ideas and work.

If you have any questions or like to leave us a message, please feel free to send us an email using the contact page.
