Welcome to Dharma Communications, the educational outreach arm of Zen Mountain Monastery. As a religious not-for-profit corporation, the line we have walked for the last two decades has been a fine one: to offer you products and services that support spiritual practice, not spiritual materialism. In a world where even the search for clarity has become a commodity, the imperative to separate the useful from the extraneous has never been more pressing.
Our books, recordings, sitting cushions, statues and other items have been carefully selected to help you develop and maintain a strong home practice. Their wide range reflects the understanding that in order for the dharma to remain vital, it must make use of any and all available resources and technology, from memory foam to smokeless incense, from fine photography to web radio. At the same time, we realize that these various skillful means are only that—tools to help you along the path. Gadgets and gimmicks come and go, but the truth of the teachings never goes out of style.
We hope that you will find these offerings helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or comments. Your input is invaluable for our continuing work and practice.
Thank you for your attention and support.
