The tiny trickle of funds will converge into a huge river and become the driving force for us to continue moving forward.
Hsingyun.org is a nonprofit organization associated with Fo Guang Shan International Translation Center (FGSITC), a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. We are dedicated to translating and distributing quality translations of classical Buddhist texts as well as works by contemporary Buddhist teachers and scholars. We embrace Humanistic Buddhism and promote Buddhist writing that is accessible, community oriented, and relevant to daily life.
We depend on the support of our readers to be able to continue our work. Your charitable gift will help us provide:
Translation. Your donations help support our team of translators and editors, who strive to create translations that combine the accuracy of considered scholarship with the warmth and accessibility of a living tradition of Buddhist practice.
Design. Your donations help us provide quality production and design in our publications so that they are lasting, memorable, and touching.
Distribution. Your donations help us print and ship our translated publications to whoever wants one so that our readers can have a bit of inspiration and wisdom to hold in their hands, slip into a pocket, or offer to a friend.
Outreach. Your donations help us find and serve seekers, students, soldiers, prisoners, and all people who wish to learn from the Buddha’s teachings.
