Many Free Dharma Books

Postby Ngawang Drolma » Thu Apr 08, 2010 6:17 am

Here are some free dharma books from the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive, Archive of the FPMT. If you're checking into Buddhism for the first time and would like to read some books without buying them at first, this is a great place to start.

This is also a good free e-book and introduction to Buddhism in the form of question and answers (a lot of intelligent responses to modern questions and issues):

Sheng Yen Orthodox Chinese Buddhism

This is actually published in real life too, but they organization I guess provides it for free online too.

Worth reading even if you're not even really into Chinese Buddhism.
