Rebuilding Nepal Through Trade

After the massive earthquakes that tragically struck Nepal in 2015, the people of Nepal are still struggling to heal emotionally and physically.

Relief workers in Kathmandu have told us that one of the most important things we can do to help Nepalese families regain a sense of normalcy is to provide trade so that people can once again wake up in the morning and go to work. We encourage you to support Nepalese artisans and their families by purchasing products marked with the prayer flag icon shown above.

DharmaCrafts has committed to donate 5% of the sales revenue of all Nepalese products throughout 2015 and 2016 to earthquake relief efforts. A large percentage of our donation will go to Roshi Joan Halifax's Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund (NERF) set up through Upaya Zen Center. Upaya's example of engaged Buddhism is inspirational to us and to our efforts. DharmaCrafts will also contribute to the Save the Children Fund.

Buddha's Daughters

(Book) Teachings from Women Who Are Shaping Buddhism in the West by Andrea Miller and the Editors of the Shambhala Sun
List Price: $17.95

Paperback, 289 pages.

Buddhism began to take root in the West at just the same time as the women's movement gave rise to the expression of women's voices here — after millennia of being relegated to the background. If that was a coincidence, it was an auspicious one because the women who emerged as Buddhist teachers have been among the most articulate of Dharma communicators and they remain an indelible feature of Buddhism in the West. This anthology showcases the remarkable range of their teachings which touch on topics that are central to our everyday life — relationships, uncertainty, love, parenting, food, social responsibility — and which illuminate Buddhist concepts and practices such as meditation, tonglen, lovingkindness, gratitude and deep relaxation.

This book contains teachings from Pema Chödrön, Ayya Khema, Sharon Salzberg, Toni Packer, Maurine Stuart, Karen Maezen Miller, Khandro Rinpoche, Jan Chozen Bays, Sister Chan Khong, Silvia Boorstein, Pat Enkyo O'Hara, Darlene Cohen, Joanna Macy, Bonnie Myotai Treace, Tsultrim Allione, Tenzin Palmo, Tara Brach, Joan Sutherland, Carolyn Rose Gimian, Joan Halifax, and Charlotte Joko Beck.
