Resource Directory for Prisoners
Individuals, organizations, and chaplains working with those in prison are welcome to print out our 29-page Resource Directory for Prisoners. This directory offers prisoners an open horizon of possibility and potential for personal support and psychological and spiritual well-being.
Within the pages of the Resource Directory for Prisoners, inmates will have access to Buddhist teachings and correspondence courses; Hindu teachings and courses; yoga teachings and materials; meditation instructions; Bible correspondence courses, Bibles and supportive Christian literature; Native American teachings and ceremonial items; ageless wisdom and esoteric teachings; pen pal correspondence; legal services and information; family and reentry support; counseling and drug rehabilitation services; free book services; continuing education; jobs and careers; creative writing and artistic resources; newsletters and magazines; personal health and nutrition resources. Most of the organizations listed in this Resource Directory offer their services, books, and literature free of charge to prisoners.
Prison outreach organizations or individuals working with prisoners, you are welcome to freely download, use and distribute our Heart of Dharma Collection of Buddhist teachings, the Glossary of Buddhist Terms, and our Resource Directory for Prisoners. You may customize the top, front page of the Resource Directory, using the name and information of your own organization or service. We would be happy to facilitate this by sending you the original Microsoft Word file or a PDF file so you can customize the document for your organization, or we will do this for you.

May the virtue of this Dharma work be dedicated to liberating all living beings from suffering, and to the ultimate goal of enlightenment for the benefit of all. May the precious heart and mind of compassion, wisdom, and love be generated in those who have not yet generated it. And may it increase continually in those who have already developed it.
