Book and Gift shop


The Book & Gift Shop here at KMC Durban is an excellent resource for authentic books on Buddhism, ritual items, meditation accessories and gifts. KMC Durban is affiliated with Tharpa Publications, a non-profit organization that publishes books on Buddhism and meditation by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
