FPMT Education Licensing

FPMT Education Services is dedicated to making authentic Dharma texts available worldwide.

FPMT centers, projects, services, registered teachers, and individuals wishing to use and/or distribute Dharma materials produced by FPMT Education Services are encouraged to follow the guidelines listed below. If you benefit from these texts, please remember that we depend on the generosity of students like you to support our publishing efforts.

Distributing Digital Copies

FPMT Centers, Projects, Services, registered teachers, and students may use digital FPMT-produced materials by acquiring the FPMT licensed source files. These files are obtained from the FPMT Foundation Store or directly from FPMT Education Services.

The complete list of available source files is in the FPMT Catalogue of Prayers and Practices

For teachings, group practices, retreats, or activities where individual students require their own digital copies of Dharma texts, please share the Foundation Store links for the sources files with students. In this way, students may download the Dharma materials directly from the Foundation Store and have the opportunity to practice generosity.

If FPMT-licensed source files themselves are shared with students, a donation for the files may be offered either through the Education Preservation Fund or when the files are obtained through the Foundation Store. A suggested donation amount is US$1-$5 per digital copy. For longer Dharma texts with fixed prices, such as the FPMT Essential Prayer Book, please contact FPMT Education Services for a suggested donation amount.

Financial offerings for these materials help us make more Dharma available in accordance with teachings about Dharma income.

Distributing Print Copies

FPMT Centers, Projects, and Service may locally print FPMT-produced materials by acquiring the FPMT licensed source files. These files are obtained from the Foundation Store or requested directly FPMT Education Services.

The complete list of available source files is in the FPMT Catalogue of Prayers and Practices. It is best to make high quality copies of Dharma text and holy images as a way to show respect for the Dharma. In accordance with teachings about Dharma income, these printed materials may be offered to students free of charge or made available by donation.
