If you would like to express your gratitude for Bhante Urgyen Sangharakshita’s life you could give to a project which we know was very dear to Bhante’s heart and currently faces a funding crisis: the editing and publication of his Complete Works.

Bhante Sangharakshita’s wish was to see “a complete, uniform edition” of all his writings, published and unpublished. 

Many people’s generous gifts for Bhante’s 90th birthday began to fulfil this wish with the launch of The Complete Works Project in 2015. Bhante was delighted:

I feel very grateful to all those whose efforts are bringing the project from dream to reality. May you all be blessed in your labours, which will surely bear fruit for many, many years to come.

Eight of the 27 volumes have been published so far and four more will appear in April 2019. 

However, the project is facing a funding crisis. It is now clear that nine years and not five will be needed for the editing work; and the production costs are higher than expected too. This is putting Windhorse Publications under serious financial strain.

If between us we can give another £90,000 then the remaining 15 volumes will be published over the next five years, and Bhante’s wish will be fulfilled. 

Give to the Complete Works of Sangharakshita Project
