- Talks published by Amaravati can be found in the audio section of this site.
- Amaravati publishes a quarterly newsletter, Looking Ahead, which contains news and announcements concerning the monastery, an events calendar and the Retreat Centre schedule.
Supporting the publication of Dhamma
We aim to make the teachings of our sangha freely available via publications. If you would like to offer to transcribe, edit or proofread the material, or wish to help with typesetting and design, etc., please contact Amaravati Publications by completing the form at the bottom of this page.
Translating Dhamma Publications
If you have an interest in translating any of our English-language publications into other languages, we naturally welcome that. However, all translations have to be checked by native-speaking monks, nuns or other practitioners to ensure accuracy. In order to avoid unnecessary work and disappointment, we recommend that if you wish to translate a text, you contact Amaravati Publications below before undertaking any work, and as your work proceeds, you send an initial sample (say ten pages) of your proposed translation before proceeding further. Valuable feedback can then be passed on.
If you wish to contribute towards the publication of books through the Amaravati Publications network, information about this can be obtained from the Publications Secretary using the ‘Contact Amaravati Publications’ button below. Any donations can then be used towards sponsoring the reprint of popular Amaravati Publications titles, or towards covering the costs of newly composed material. This will support Amaravati Publications in producing an ongoing supply of books and booklets to encourage the practice of Dhamma.
