Prison Outreach
Books Behind Bars
SVALORNAS SANGHA Peacemakers Sweden
Are you or do you know someone who is locked up in an institution? Are you interested in whether meditation and Buddhist philosophy can be a support in such a difficult situation?

Books Behind Bars tries to help people in prisons or other locked institutions by donating books on meditation and Buddhist philosophy. Because we know how difficult it can be to maintain a practice without a community or a teacher, we want to remedy that as best we can in the tough place people in prisons or other institutions find themselves in. Write to us with requests for a particular book or just around a theme, we try to send a suitable book.

How can people help? If you have the time and interest, you can help with administration, information dissemination and the like. If you have old books about Buddhism and meditation, gifts are welcome and can then be passed on. The project is also in need of money so you can donate to this via swish 0735270292 Tag the gift: Books behind bars.
