In a span of nearly five decades the BPS has become a major Buddhist publisher with hundreds of titles and a field of distribution extending all over the world. Besides these books, BPS also publishes full-length books as time and circumstances permit. These include standard introductions to Buddhism, translations from the Pali Canon and its commentaries, works on meditation and original contemporary expositions of Buddhist thought. Altogether, their publications constitute a voluminous reference library on Theravada Buddhism.

In this way, an ancient tradition and the information superhighway will come together to create an electronic meeting place of shared concern and interests. BuddhaNet is a non-sectarian organisation, offering its services to all Buddhist traditions. It aims to facilitate a significant Buddhist presence in the ever-expanding realm of computer communications technology, applying this technology to helping make the Buddha’s teachings freely available to all.
