Bookstore/Gift Shop


KMC Long Island and its two branch locations each have a quaint bookstore, excellent resources for books on Buddhism, ritual items, and accessories. All three carry the written works of modern Buddhist meditation master, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, an accomplished author of 22 highly acclaimed books that perfectly transmit the ancient wisdom of Buddha. Geshe Kelsang is the founder of our center and more than 1,200 Kadampa Buddhist centers and groups around the world.


Tharpa Publications distributes Geshe Kelsang’s books which are written with great clarity and offer a practical approach that meets the needs of modern people. They are available in many languages and range from introductory works to detailed commentaries on the most profound aspects of Buddhism. His books form the basis of our highly popular study programs in modern Buddhism and meditation here at KMC-LI and at centers around the world. Tharpa also supplies audio CDs, Buddhist art, and sadhanas for prayer and meditation.


Our bookstores, which are open during class hours, carry a wide selection of Buddha statues, shrine items such as offering bowls, and ritual items such as malas (prayer beads), mandala kits, vajras and bells. We also carry accessories from jewelry and hand-made book covers to incense and journals which complement Buddhist practice and make excellent gifts.


Stop in and browse our bookstore/gift shop the next time you visit to attend a class and relax with a cup of tea!


Our Huntington bookstore/gift shop is open Sundays 10am – 2pm and Monday-Thursday 11am – 1pm.
