“I launched Shogam Publications because I was feeling quite dissatisfied with contemporary Buddhist books. They usually fall into one of two categories. They are either too shallow, hardly qualifying as Buddhist books, more so being pop psychology or pulp psychology, or they are weighty and have some substance, but are written in a way that is not accessible to most people. So it is my hope that the books that we bring out will fill that gap.”
– Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche IX, Founder Shogam Publications.
Shogam is committed to producing high quality books on Buddhism and related fields. We feel that there is a real need for books that go into a subject matter in sufficient depth and yet are accessible to a general readership. Our authors are highly trained in the academic world or are people with intensive meditational training, or both.
