Shambhala Publications has acquired Snow Lion Publications, a purchase that will add more than 300 new titles to its list of books on spirituality, psychology, health and lifestyle. Snow Lion, based in Ithaca, NY, specializes in Tibetan Buddhist books, including over two dozen titles by the Dalai Lama.

Julie Saidenberg, Shambhala’s publisher, said the company was excited to add a large selection of Buddhist books to complement “our broader range of books on a multiplicity of traditions.” Shambhala will retain the Snow Lion name as an imprint and at least three Snow Lion editors will move to Shambhala.

Snow Lion’s books will continue to be available to the trade through National Book Network for the time being and by the fall will be distributed by Random House with the rest of Shambhala’s titles.
