A: Pariyatti is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to help disseminate the words of the Buddha. We strive to continue to find ways to make best use of this hard-earned money, generously donated by so many to Pariyatti.

One of these is to explore ways to optimize our operations. Our goal is to disseminate Dhamma content.

With the advent of eBooks and the internet, the entire book publishing and distribution industry has faced significant challenges.

With these industry changes, and Pariyatti's additional challenges in serving a niche market with low sales volumes, it has been financially difficult to staff our own warehouse and operations.

Year after year, the costs of maintaining our own warehouse has far exceeded the income. By focusing on what we do best such as make Dhamma content available at low or no cost , and partnering with others who have already built robust printing, packing, and delivery systems, we free up resources that can be redirected towards expanding Pariyatti's offerings for you.
