I have learned a great deal from the people or organizations on this page, and am very grateful to them. Many of them are supported through the generosity of others, and if you were so inclined, that would be one more good thing in this world.
These are some of my favorite books. I love to read and hope you like these books as much as I have.

Selected Buddhist Readings
Buddhism has several major lineages – Theravadan (based on the original teachings of the Buddha), Tibetan, Chan, Zen, and Pure Land – as well as modern variations and syntheses of these. My background is mainly Theravadan, and I welcome suggestions for other lineages.
