The International Bodhisattva Sangha (IBS) was formally established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in November 2006. One of our main goals is to educate inmates in the state prions about Buddhism, meditation and right way of life. We have been doing this for 18 years. We setup libraries and Sangha in the CA state prison. There are 21 libraries and 11 Sangha so far. We are visiting total of 8 prisons.
Dharma books are playing very important role in inmate's life. There are hundreds of inmates in California prisons learning about Dharma because of they have access to different books from Buddhist library. There are 21 libraries already establish in 8 prisons. There lots more to setup. IBS planning to setup 4 more libraries this year; please join and support us to make it happened.
