About this place
Established in 1983 by the Venerable Bellanwila Dhammaratana, the Singapore Buddhist Library (BL) has become a haven for those seeking to delve into the profound wisdom of Buddhism. The library's extensive collection of over 16,000 books in English and Chinese encompasses a wide spectrum of Buddhist scriptures, doctrine, philosophy, ethics, meditation, devotion, art, and architecture.
