Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy back in print

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 27 Jan, 2021 - 12:08

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy (Who is the Buddha?, What is the Dharma? and What is the Sangha?) is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Buddhism. It provides an elucidation of the three central principles on which Buddhism is based: the Buddha, who represents the principle of ‘awakening’; the Dharma, the teachings and practices that cultivate awakening; and the Sangha, the principle of spiritual friendship. For quite some time, both Who is the Buddha? and What is the Sangha? have been out of print. We’re pleased...
