Dear friends, students, and customers,

We will no longer be selling sacred art through our bookstore. More generally, Dharma Publishing and all our sister organizations will be discontinuing sacred art sales.

The main purpose for our bookstore has always been to support our educational activities and make important texts available to our students and the general public, and so we will continue carrying Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche’s books as well as a broad range of Buddhist texts for your study and practice. 

All best wishes,

The Nyingma Institute staff and administration
