About Us

Vajra Publications is a publisher of Dharma teachings that were translated from authentic Tibetan Buddhist lineages that have remained unbroken for centuries. It was created by Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche at the Tibetan Meditation Center in Frederick, Maryland, U.S.

At the direction of Khenchen Gyaltshen in the fall of 2000, the publishing and distribution portion of Vajra Publications moved to Gainesville, FL and was established as an independent business.  In the fall of 2012, the business was relocated to Frederick, Maryland

The books, texts and tapes made available are produced with the commitment to preserve and transmit the pure, authentic teachings of the Dharma. The main focus of these teachings in the past has been from the Drikung Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. At Khenchen Rinpoche’s direction, this focus is to be expanded to all authentic lineages of Tibetan Buddhism and other sources of Buddhist teachings.

We encourage teachers of all lineages to consider Vajra Publications for their next publishing project, whether paper book, e-book, CD or tape. Online sales and distribution from the web are included as part of the publishing services.
