Pen Pal and Book Donation Projects
We are an independent interfaith Sangha dedicated to providing spiritual support for Buddhists behind bars. We currently donate Buddhist books, magazines, videos and audio cassettes to prisons and inmates around the country upon request. Your donations of new or used books and literature on Buddhism and Eastern Philosophy are what make this possible! Thank you to ALL who have in the past or will in the future mail study materials to an inmate; or if you prefer, you can mail them to ChanterKyo/Betty for distribution:

If you would like to know what more you can do for these Bodhisattva-Inmates, please join our discussion group! If you would like to be a Pen Pal for an Inmate, have any other corrections/additions to this webpage, please email the BIS founder (Chanterkyo) and the webmaster (CampRoss) at BuddhistInmateSanghaemail@example.com.
Only softcover books are generally allowed into the prisons. When sending used books, mark the package "Religious Goods/Books." New books can be sent direct from the temple/bookstore/publisher to ANY inmate. Study material printed from the web should have all URLs removed or they will be returned.
