Since the release of Thich Nhat Hanh's seminal work, Being Peace, in 1985, Parallax Press has published over seventy-five titles on socially engaged Buddhism that have been translated into more than 30 languages. As the nonprofit publishing division of the Unified Buddhist Church, our mission is to make books on engaged Buddhism accessible to as large an audience as possible. To this end, we keep our book prices low, donate many books each year to schools, prisoners, sanghas, and libraries, and have begun an extensive transcription project of all Thich Nhat Hanh's talks. None of this would be possible without the generous and ongoing support of our readers and of our larger community.
