The Book & Gift Shop here at KMCC is an excellent resource for books on Buddhism, ritual items, meditation accessories and gifts. KMCC is affiliated with Tharpa Publications, a non-profit organization that publishes books on Buddhism and meditation by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso. Books are available in English, as well as in many other languages. We supply audiobooks, meditation CDs, prayer booklets and a wide selection of Buddha statues and ritual items (such as malas, vajras and bells). Meditation cushions and zabutons are also available for purchase. Accessories, from jewelry and book covers to incense and journals, complement Buddhist practice and make excellent gifts.

You are welcome to drop by, take a tour and browse the shop. We look forward to seeing you!
