Today we take a look at the last of the volumes of the Complete Works of Sangharakshita to come out in July this year. Volume 26 is called Aphorisms, the Arts, and Late Writings, and it was edited by the seemingly indefatigable Vidyadevi.
Publishing this volume is cause to celebrate the arts in Triratna, so in the Community Highlights section, we’ll point you to two recent self-published books around Buddhism and the arts, from paintings to poetry and beyond.

The Puja Book
The hardback edition of the Puja Book has been out of stock for a few months. It’s now back in stock. It includes a few minor...

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previously unpublished poems from his early years
six short stories, some of them previously unpublished

Dharmapriya is a Triratna Order member currently living in Berlin. He’s involved with a variety of projects for the movement and is currently concentrating on organising and editing translations.
Forty years ago, when Dharmapriya was still a mitra, he recognised Sangharakshita as a ‘spiritual genius’ and appreciated that his writing was ‘a treasure to be guarded and used’. Over the years, as Sangharakshita’s works were published, Dharmapriya bought them all.
Dharmapriya was delighted when The Complete Works was released, but he hesitated about subscribing;...
I’ve been working on the index for Volume 13 of Bhante’s Complete Works for the last few weeks and finished it on Friday morning, having worked late into the night before. It has felt like its own kind of vigil for Bhante to be doing this. A great privilege to tend his ‘Dharma body’, or one physical manifestation of it, at least. I’m not a professional indexer but a (supported) amateur - tho’ as Vidyadevi kindly reminded me, the etymology of...

We are looking forward to the release of four new volumes of the The Complete Works of Sangharakshita in early April. This coincides with celebrations around the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Triratna Order by Sangharakshita.
The Complete Works include all previously published work by Sangharakshita, as well as talks, seminars and writings published for the first time. This collection represents the definitive edition of his life’s work as a Buddhist writer and teacher.
“May has been a month of large changes around the Adhisthana land. Diggers and dumper trucks have been shifting tons of earth around for some of our largest works since opening. Inside the buildings there has also been much work taking place in several areas, not least in the shrine room where the shrine is undergoing a major transformation. Even though the machines have been rumbling away most of the month there...
