Venerable Bhikkhuni Visuddhi is currently finalizing a Dhamma book that is due for publication next year. Now, it is also possible to play our audio recordings on various streaming services thanks to the kind help of Gabriela Konderlová. For your information, at the moment we only have audios in Czech, but we would be grateful if any of you who is a native English speaker or who has been living in an English speaking country for many years would be happy to record the audios in English for our international practitioners. If you are interested in helping us out with this, please contact us.
Also, we are planning to produce downloadable applications for you.
