'Meeting the Buddhas' returning soon!

'Meeting the Buddhas' returning soon!

By Helen - Windhor... on Thu, 6 Oct, 2022 - 15:07

Originally published in 1993, Vessantara’s Meeting the Buddhas rapidly attained the status of a classic not only within Triratna, but also in the wider Buddhist world. Out of print since 2008, it’s been carefully revised and updated, and in December we’ll be releasing a brand-new edition. The new cover was designed by Akasajoti, and many of the images that illustrate the text are new.  

How you can help

As we’ve mentioned before, it’s a precarious time in publishing, with high inflation and global...

Introducing 'Cyberloka' by Prajnaketu

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 25 May, 2022 - 10:00

Dhammamegha here. I’m very pleased to be writing to tell you about a new book we will publish in November, and to ask you to be part of making it happen. The book has been written by Prajnaketu, and it’s called Cyberloka: A Buddhist Guide to Digital Life.

This book is just what we need right now when our capacity to deal creatively with being online so much hasn’t caught up with the amazing technology and media we’re using. Through...

The Sound of One Hand (The Buddhist Centre Podcast, Episode 428)

By Centre Team on Fri, 29 Apr, 2022 - 00:06

Sometimes a new Dharma book turns up that manages to seem both effortlessly profound and very funny. Of course, Satyadasa’s The Sound of One Hand is actually the product of hard-won experience, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the podcast to talk about his wonderful memoir as a tale of struggle, inspiration and the meeting of twin lineages in his life: Dharma practice and family. 

We hear Satyadasa’s account of the challenges and joys to be had figuring out...

Seeing It Better: A Review of 'After Cézanne' by Maitreyabandhu

Seeing It Better: A Review of 'After Cézanne' by Maitreyabandhu

By Vishvapani on Thu, 21 Apr, 2022 - 17:26

After Cézanne,
By Maitreyabandhu,
Bloodaxe, 2019

Review by Vishvapani
Maitreyabandhu’s most recent poetry collection reflects on Cézanne’s paintings and is a subtle meditation on the possibilities of art and perception

The epigraph of Maitreyabandhu’s most recent collection After Cézanne is a quote from a letter the artist sent to Emile Bernard in 1904: ‘Talking about art is virtually useless.’ That challenges the fifty-plus poems in the collection, which all relate directly or indirectly to Cézanne’s painting and are generously...

We've started a podcast!

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 6 Apr, 2022 - 11:00

Dhammamegha here again. I was in my teens and having a bit of a rough time when I first had a spontaneous experience of great expansiveness and love. It was suffused with peace and proved to be a turning point in my life.

Before the Internet, and relying on a small suburban library in Cape Town, I looked for anything that might resonate with that experience. And that’s when I found my first Dharma books. They helped me to keep in touch...

The Sound of One Hand by Satyadasa: Review by Vishvapani

By Vishvapani on Tue, 5 Apr, 2022 - 16:12

The Sound of One Hand
By Satyadasa
Yakhorn Press, 2022

Like Satyadasa I’ve been a part of the Triratna Buddhist Community for the whole of my adult life. He’s about a decade younger than me, but many of the Triratna experiences he describes in The Sound of One Hand are shared. Like me, David (as Satyadasa is called up to his ordination) grew up in the middle-class South London suburbs and had an Oxbridge education before pitching into...
