Our library is one of the best Buddhist libraries in Australia! It is funded by donations in kind, any profit from sale of books in our shop, and from a regular and generous stream of monetary donations. Have a look on the inside cover of a huge proportion of our books, and you will see a thank you to the person who donated it.
Offering to the library is the part of the practice of making offerings to the Dharma Jewel. It’s also the highest form of the Perfection of Generosity (not just offering material help, but the means to end suffering forever). Oh yes, and it’s also really inspiring supporting a community of people who love the rare and wonderful feast on the shelves.
