Established to distribute Buddhist teachings and to promote peace.

Blue Pine Books draw upon the vast knowledge of our contributors, who are among the most prominent Buddhist scholars and activists in the world. The two major classifications of Buddhism, Theravada and Mahayana, are equally represented by these distinguished writers. Our books investigate peace and justice from the theoretical perspectives that speak of Buddhist principles and Buddhism's beliefs as well as practical perspectives of Socially Engaged Buddhism and compassionate Buddhism without beliefs.

Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike may draw upon the information and the knowledge shared by these profound thinkers, to build peace and promote social justice in the midst of the struggles and problems facing the planet. Our books are intended for social scientists, peace activists, Buddhist scholars, engaged Buddhists and all people concerned about social conditions.

Readers will find Buddhist wisdom on peace and justice may broaden their understanding of the relationship of self to other. We hope these uplifting messages will lead to the discovery of ways of bringing about happiness in this world of conflict and injustice.
