About Our Free Materials

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for coming to see the free items we have for you as you study the Buddha's teachings.

One or Two Copies of The Teaching of Buddha Free with Some Restrictions. You can request one or two copies of The Teaching of Buddha at no charge, but there are a few limitations on geography and quantity.

  • Continental United States. We can send our free print publications to anywhere in the continental United States, including APO and FPO military addresses, in most cases.

  • Request for Copies Elsewhere. If you are looking to receive a copy of The Teaching of Buddha at a location outside the continental United States, please reach out to the appropriate regional office (see listing here). If you don't find what you need, send us an email note at the address shown below.

  • Quantity Limitations. We can send one or two copies of The Teaching of Buddha to you free of all charges, and we will accept orders of three to five copies subject to a charge for shipping.

  • Shipping Charge Is Same for 3, 4, or 5 Copies. The shipping charge is currently $15 and is made whenever the order exceeds two copies of The Teaching of Buddha. The charge does not change and remains $15 regardless of whether the order includes three, four, or five copies of The Teaching of Buddha. You will pay $15 for three copies. If you order five copies, you still pay $15 total.

  • You Cannot Request More Than Five Copies in Your Order. Your order for more than five copies in a single order will be blocked from being added to the shopping cart.

  • Mini-Booklets Do Not Affect Restrictions Otherwise. The restrictions on total copies--and the rules on when shipping charges might apply--are not affected by your order of one or two of our mini-booklets, such as A Teaching a Day and Messages from the Buddha. So if you order one copy of The Teaching of Buddha and one each of the pamphlets, the order remains free.

Free PDFs. Because PDFs are tremendously portable, and are useful for electronic access, we try to provide free PDFs of almost all of our publications, including the volumes in the BDK English Tripitaka Translation series; see all the examples here.
