As part of the celebrations around the 50th anniversary of the Triratna Order, Windhorse Publications will release four new volumes of The Complete Works of Sangharakshita in early April.

The Complete Works include all previously published work by Sangharakshita, as well as talks, seminars and writings published for the first time. This collection represents the definitive edition of his life’s work as a Buddhist writer and teacher.

Launched in Oct, 2016 with Dr. Ambedkar and the Revival of Buddhism I, there are already four volumes published which include: The Three Jewels II, Mahayana Myths and Stories and The Rainbow Road from Tooting Broadway to Kalimpong.

Thanks to a number of people for getting the project off to a flying start. These include Michelle Bernard and Priyananda for production, Kalyanaprabha, Shantavira and Vidyadevi for co-editing, Dhammarati and Ruth Rudd for design work and Giulietta Spudich for communications.

The Complete Works: What’s Coming in April?

The four new volumes coming soon are:

A Survey of Buddhism/The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path (Volume 1) Designed to be the very first volume in the set, this volume brings the influential A Survey of Buddhism back in print. It includes the book The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path, and a newly written Foreword by Subhuti.

Milarepa and the Art of Discipleship I and II (Volumes 18 and 19) These two volumes contain quite a lot of previously unpublished commentary by Sangharakshita on Milarepa’s songs, including ‘The Shepherd’s Search for Mind’ and stories tracing the relationship between Milarepa and his disciple Rechungpa. Vidyadevi has written insightful Forewords and the book The Yogi’s Joy is republished in volume 18.

Facing Mount Kanchenjunga (Volume 21) Two books are included in this volume: Facing Mount Kanchenjunga and Dear Dinoo. As Kalyanaprabha explains in the Foreword, Sangharakshita finds a ‘new gate’ after years of going forth in India. ‘… it opens onto a new path – that of responding to the needs of others.’

Volumes will be available for purchase individually or as a complete set, in eBook, paperback and hardback formats. Existing subscribers to The Complete Works will receive them upon publication.
