The Buddhist Reserch society and its main limb the Buddhists Library have been inoperation in Singapore under the guidance and direction of Ven. Dr. Bellanwila Dhammaratana Nayaka Thero, for over three decades. The society aims at providing and promoting Buddhist education. Besides collecting resource materials on Buddhism and related topics, it also conducts courses, talks and meditation retreats on a regular basis. It has published several books on Buddhist studies authored by renowned Buddhist scholars. A recent innovation of the Library is the production of a video cassette on the life of the Buddha in animation.

The Library serves as a platform for members of various Buddhist schools to learn, discuss and teach Buddhism. Having established close links with Buddhist organizations in Singapore, the Library now seeks to reach out to Buddhists overseas.
