Windhorse Publications, Triratna’s publishing house, will be releasing their latest title, ‘Solitude and Loneliness: A Buddhist View’ , by Sarvananda on 14 June. Hannah writes from Windhorse with the details, saying -

“Charlie Chaplin observed, ‘Loneliness is the theme of everyone.’ Although true, it is equally true that we all very skilfully, and often unconsciously, organize our lives in such a way as to avoid loneliness.

Drawing on a wide range of sources – the poets Dickinson and Hafiz, the painter Edward Hopper, the sage Milarepa, the lives of Helen Keller and Chris McCandless, and of course the Buddha – Sarvananda explores the themes of isolation, loneliness and solitude from a Buddhist perspective and examines how and why our relationship to ourselves can be a source of both suffering and liberation.

From 14 June, Sarvananda’s Solitude and Loneliness: A Buddhist View will be available to purchase at your local Triratna bookshop and from the Windhorse Publications website”.
