From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Mon, 17 Aug, 2020 - 14:45

This week Windhorse Publications is giving away A Guide to the Buddhas by Vessantara. 

Why does Buddhism refer to so many Buddhas? Who are they, and what can they tell us about ourselves? In this inspiring book we meet the Buddhas who form part of the rich symbolism of Tibetan Buddhism. Vessantara combines the power of storytelling with practical guidance and succeeds in bringing to life six Buddhas and their visualization practices (the historical Buddha, Śakyamuni, and the archetypal Buddhas of the...

Chairs' Letter – June 2020

From College of Public Preceptors on Wed, 1 Jul, 2020 - 12:25

Dear Order members and friends,

June was my last month of solitary lockdown in South Wales. In practice that meant spending even more time than usual on my computer, although I did manage one week offline. I also read Analayo’s Compassion and Emptiness and re-read The Glass Bead Game, and went for long walks along deserted lanes and footpaths in the national park.

I emerged from my week off to the deluge of discussion around the subject...

June book sale at Windhorse Publications

From The Community Toolkit for Uncertain Times on Mon, 1 Jun, 2020 - 12:59

Lockdown rules are changing for some of us. So perhaps there’s not quite so much staying at home involved this month’s Stay at Home Sale. We have chosen a range of books to offer resources and inspiration in this transition time. 
 
To continue the ‘For the Earth’ theme of Buddhist Action Month, we’ve got what I think is the only one of our books to be written by a vet. Bodhipaksa’s Vegetarianism: A Buddhist View, is reduced...
