A set of 20 books by the late Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh is being donated to Canadian prisons during 2022. These books are popular among Buddhists and the general public alike. They will also be useful for prison chaplains who wish to offer spiritual care service to Buddhists incarcerated in their institutions. The 20 books are listed here: http://www.buddhisminprisons.ca/book-donation--pen-pals.html
Our team of volunteer pen pals will be happy to correspond by letters with inmates whose institutions have received these book donations to discuss the books that they are reading, and explore how the teachings in these books may help them heal and see new possibilities for themselves. These books and our pen pal service are also available in French.
Prison chaplains are invited to contact us at info@BuddhismInPrisons.ca to have this set of 20 books delivered to your institutions free of charge. Other Buddhist books in Burmese, Chinese, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Laotian, Sinhala, Thai, Tibetan, or Vietnamese may also be donated to prisons where inmates prefer to read the Buddhist teachings in these languages.
The Applied Buddhism Network International has launched a Buddhist Book Donation & Prison Pen Pal Program in 2022.
