New podcast episode featuring Nagabodhi

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 8 Feb, 2023 - 13:00

Some of you may already be familiar with Nagabodhi and his talent as a storyteller. We’ll be publishing his latest book, Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man, later this month.

Flash sale of Bhikkhu Anālayo's books

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 1 Feb, 2023 - 10:00

In this blog post, we’re focusing on the books of scholar-monk Bhikkhu Anālayo. Windhorse Publications published his first book on Satipaṭṭhāna nearly twenty years ago. Since then, we’ve published many of his classic practice-based translations, interpretations, and applications of early Buddhist suttas on mindfulness, compassion, and emptiness. He has revived the study of Early Buddhism with his scholarship, and led many practice retreats around the world.

If you’ve ever read one of Bhikkhu Anālayo’s books, you’ll know that they can bring inspiration,...

February

Next month we’ll be publishing a biography of Sangharakshita by Nagabodhi: Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man. Sangharakshita was an audacious reformer, and for some a deeply controversial figure. In an absorbing narrative, Nagabodhi takes us on a journey through the twists and turns of Sangharakshita’s life; the experiences, insights,...

Windhorse Publications' review of the year

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 21 Dec, 2022 - 16:03

As 2022 draws to a close, we’re looking back at the past year. And what a year it’s been!

Behind the scenes in 2022

This year has been a tough one for small independent publishers. So it’s been a balancing act for Dhammamegha as Publishing Director, as we ride the waves of high printing costs and disrupted freight, to make sure that we have all the Dharma books we need in the Triratna community, and that Windhorse Publications is continuing to grow and make...

Preorder the New Issue of Urthona 'Unknown Landscapes'

Preorder the New Issue of Urthona 'Unknown Landscapes'

Tue, 20 Dec, 2022 - 14:44

Urthona Issue 36 ‘Unknown Landscapes’ will be out just after Xmas. 

Landscapes move and uplift us in ways that are hard to pin down. Artists explore such emotional responses and bring clarity, awareness and transformational depth to the process. They help us to make the appreciation of landscape more conscious and meaningful. 

As Christopher Neve in his wonderful book ‘Unquiet Landscape’ says of the work of Paul Nash: ‘pictures, like the landscape itself, enunciate with the greatest clarity a language that is beyond words.’
