Pariyatti, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded to bring people into contact with the teachings of the Buddha. We provide resources in the Theravada tradition, and support Pali language studies and Vipassana meditation. We serve meditators, scholars, educators and the public by providing ready access to hard-to-find titles.
Donations provide essential financial support for these services, and in this way our supporters help people from all walks of life discover the richness within these teachings. More information.
