Parallax Press is a nonprofit publisher founded by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh. We publish books and media on the art of mindful living and Engaged Buddhism. We are committed to offering teachings that help transform suffering and injustice. Our aspiration is to contribute to collective insight and awakening, bringing about a more joyful, healthy, and compassionate society.
We’re grateful for our readers, wherever they find our books—at local bookstores, libraries, stores of all shapes and sizes, or received as a gift.
For every book you buy from directly from us (on this site, or in person), we donate one to a person who is incarcerated. Your purchase is a gift that sustains our work and offers refuge to someone who needs it most.
