The year ahead at Windhorse Publications

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 18 Jan, 2023 - 10:30

In this blog post, we’re looking ahead to our plans for the next twelve months. We hope the books we publish will help to sustain your practice over the coming year.

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

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.’ 

Join us soon to discover...

New Video Blog from Urgyen House: Green Tara

Tue, 13 Dec, 2022 - 17:18

The latest video blog from Urgyen House is now available. 

Dharmacharini Dhammadinna explores Sangharakshita’s long connection with the Bodhisattva Green Tara and his teacher Chattrul Sangye Dorje. With photographs, video and objects from the Urgyen House archives, that take us from Kalimpong, India to Taraloka, Tiratanaloka, London and Adhisthana, UK, we learn of the great significance of Green Tara in Sangharakshita’s life and work.

From Windhorse Publications on Tue, 13 Dec, 2022 - 11:00

We’re delighted to announce the release of Satyadasa’s unputdownable memoir, The Sound of One Hand, which is a tender account of one person’s ‘Dharma life’. What does it look like to live a contemporary Buddhist life, with a strong response to the Buddha’s teachings, as well as ambition, a partner, a sense of humour, one of the most interesting grandfathers imaginable, and a stump for a left hand?

Satyadasa self-published the book earlier this year, and we’re very pleased to be publishing...

Introducing a biography of Sangharakshita

From Windhorse Publications on Wed, 16 Nov, 2022 - 12:45

We’re delighted to introduce a biography of Sangharakshita, due for publication in February. It’s Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man by Nagabodhi, and we’d like to invite you to consider sponsoring it.

It’s now four years since Sangharakshita’s death. Unlike generations before, people new to the Triratna Buddhist Community or interested in the spread of Buddhism in India and internationally can no longer meet and encounter him directly. So Windhorse Publications commissioned this book. We asked Nagabodhi to write something that...
