SACRED TEXTS NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT
It costs thousands of dollars a year to pay for this
sites' bandwidth and maintenance.
Without your continued support,
sacred-texts would go offline or have to be scaled back.
Your support is crucial; this site does not
receive grants or institutional support.
The best way to support the site is to
purchase the CD-ROM.
The Sacred-texts CD-ROM has hundreds of books on it
that are extremely hard to locate, including all of the major world scriptures.
If you buy a copy, you can feel good knowing that you are helping
keep this site online.
If you've already purchased the CD-ROM, or you can't afford it,
you can also donate directly using PayPal
in any amount.
For a limited time only,
make a donation of $20 or more via PayPal,
and I'll send you an copy of an older version of the CD-ROM.
Hurry, supplies are limited!
This offer will end when supplies run out.
You can now buy the CD-ROM using PayPal without having to
actually sign up for PayPal.
Also, you don't have to have a credit card to buy the CD-ROM using
PayPal: you can use your checking account.
This site is available on CD-ROM!

The Internet Sacred Text Archive CD-ROM includes electronic texts of
nearly a thousand of the most important books and articles ever written,
including over two hundred transcribed specially for sacred-texts. Years
of extensive research and scholarship went into this CD-ROM: all the core
texts of religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric are on one disk.
"worth far more than the price"
This collection includes the full text of each book, many with footnotes
and illustrations. To buy all of these books you would have to spend tens
of thousands of dollars, even if you could find them: many are out of
print and hard to obtain at any price. You pay just pennies a book: the
CD-ROM costs just $49.95; worldwide shipping is free when you buy direct!
Everything on the disk can be viewed in a standard web browser on
your PC or Macintosh.
Proceeds from sales of the CD-ROM go to support
free access to the Internet Sacred Text Archive on the web
and development of new etexts.
