Summer reading ideas from Windhorse Publications

From Windhorse Publications on Fri, 14 May, 2021 - 14:39

With summer in the northern hemisphere fast approaching, and infections under control in many places, including here in the UK, lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease. What joy to be able to spend time together again! Some of us are making plans to go away on holiday, even if the choice of destination is somewhat limited.

The Precepts of Atisha

From Adhisthana on Tue, 11 May, 2021 - 10:00

The Precepts of Atisha

From Adhisthana on Tue, 11 May, 2021 - 10:00

The precept of the Lama is more important than scriptures and commentaries.

- Atiśa

In the early days of the Order, Sangharakshita held a seminar on a book called The Door of Liberation, which consisted of seven Tibetan texts, translated under the auspices of Geshe Wangyal. The Kadamthorbu was one of those.

Early Bird Rate Extended to 16th May

Lived out fully, Buddhist practice is revolutionary. Its purpose is a complete transformation of every element of our lives and of the world around us. 

The legendary Tibetan Guru Padmasambhava is the archetype of this transformation. His mythic life story presents a conflict between the forces of light and the forces of darkness – a conflict that takes place within our own hearts and minds....

Another free eBook from Windhorse Publications

From Windhorse Publications on Fri, 14 May, 2021 - 14:32

A line from a poem by Damian Barr has been widely quoted recently: ‘We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat.’ In some places the winds of COVID-19 are raging, and the boats are not seaworthy. In India. In Brazil. Amongst those who have lost much in the last year, one way or another. So, this week we’re giving away the eBook edition of Vessantara’s The Heart, a guide to cultivating a boundless, loving heart that...

Coronavirus Appeal: A Message from the CEO of Karuna Trust

From Karuna Fundraisers on Thu, 22 Apr, 2021 - 11:58

As most of you know the situation in India is again becoming desperate. 

This second wave of COVID-19 is spreading faster; infection rates are more than double than at the previous peak and health facilities are being overwhelmed. Night curfews and local lockdowns are still paralysing many states, with devastating consequences for migrant workers. As before, it is the most vulnerable and marginalised people suffering most.

Urgent Appeal for 66 Order members in India

From Triratna India on Sat, 17 Apr, 2021 - 22:19

Dear Friends,

The second wave of covid is causing poverty, distress and death in India. Very sadly we have lost several members of the Order to covid in recent days. Currently 15 Order members are unwell with covid to the point of needing medicines and / or oxygen. With public health supplies running low, these things need to be paid for privately. We want to send £150 to each of these Order members to give them this ability.
