Here at Windhorse Publications we’re busy preparing for the release in April of the next three volumes of The Complete Works of Sangharakshita. One of these is Volume 25, Poems and Short Stories, now available for pre-order.
You may already be familiar with Sangharakshita’s Complete Poems, published in 1994. Even if you already have a copy, this new volume is worth buying, as it contains over one hundred pages of extra material:
all the poems Sangharakshita wrote after 1994
previously unpublished poems from his early years
six short stories, some of them previously unpublished

The beginning of April saw the publication of the four latest volumes in The Complete Works of Sangharakshita, bringing the total number of published volumes to twelve. With fifteen more volumes yet to be published, this ambitious project, due for completion in 2024, is almost at its halfway point.
Last week members of the Complete Works team – most of them volunteers – met at Adhisthana to share their experiences of and perspectives on the project, including the challenges they’ve encountered and the lessons they’ve...
There’s something about coming at it all fresh and trying to see the patterns in it and bring it together in its different ‘baskets’…

Happy New Year.
We wanted to give you a heads-up on the new books we are publishing in 2019.
The Complete Works
Eight volumes of The Complete Works of Sangharakshita have already been published, and we look forward to the launch of four new volumes in April. The existing 251 subscribers to The Complete Works will automatically receive the new volumes upon publication – you too can subscribe to join these individuals and Centres. Volumes are also available for individual purchase.
A dedicated teacher of the Dharma and a prolific author, the words of Sangharakshita live on through his Order and community, recorded talks and books.
Windhorse Publications has been the main publisher of Sangharakshita since its foundation in 1974, and we continue to publish his writings through The Complete Works. The Complete Works of Sangharakshita include all his previously published work, as well as talks, seminars and writings published for the first time. Eight volumes have been published, and there are nineteen more to come.
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...
In late July, a GFR Mitra completed a 5 day ‘modern pilgrimage’, walking over 120 miles from Adhisthana to the Liverpool Buddhist Centre, in central Liverpool. Along the way, David Tyfield carried four heavy texts from the newly published Complete Works of Sangharakshita, and signed by Bhante himself at Adhisthana the day before setting off. Inspired by the great fabled pilgrimage of the 7th Century Chinese monk Xuanzang, mythologized in the Monkey Tales of...
Sthanashraddha is Bhante’s secretary. He writes from Adhisthana, UK:
“Spring only really fully arrived towards the end of April, and it was less than a month ago that the gardens were covered in our last batch of snowfall. But, yes, eventually after what felt like weeks of watching tulip flowers develop buds and slowly watching them rise up on their stems, and slowly see buds swelling, we had a few days of warm weather and sunshine, and...
