Our commitment

The Sumeru Press Inc. is dedicated to publishing and distributing Buddhist books and art. We celebrate and support all traditions and lineages. Our profits support a variety of charities.

We are located in Ottawa, Ontario. Prices are in Canadian dollars. Follow us on Facebook (SumeruBooks) and Twitter (@SumeruBooks).

In addition to our publishing activities, we also maintain Canada’s leading Buddhist news blog, and a directory of more than 600 Canadian Buddhist organizations (www.canadianbuddhism.info).

COVID-19 UPDATE: Please note that both the book manufacturing sector and the delivery sector in North America are operating at about one-quarter speed for small publishers. Your books may take up to 60 days to reach you.

Our printer's large distribution customers like Amazon, as well as the European and Australian plants, are still working fine on a 5-day service promise. In other words, the printer/distributor, Ingram Content Management, are favouring Amazon by throttling small publishers with a 22-day service promise for the USA and Canada. We hope you will choose to order books from us directly, in spite of the delay, but if you really want your book in a hurry right now, we suggest you order from one of the big online vendors. All of them carry books by Sumeru.

THIS IS A GOOD TIME TO PRACTICE THE PARAMITA OF PATIENCE.
