Free the Dharma - Mind in Harmony by Subhuti

By dhammamegha on Mon, 11 May, 2020 - 13:21

This is the eighth week that we’ll be sharing a weekly e-book. When we started in March, it seemed likely that it would be something we’d do for a month or two at the most. Yet here we are, two months later, and this new future stretches before us. 

This week we’re giving away Subhuti’s Mind in Harmony: the psychology of Buddhist ethics. You can download it free here until 25 May. You can also buy a paper copy here

This book is a beautiful guide, within whatever time you have, to finding a path into spaciousness. Through poetry and reflections, Paramananda lives and teaches how to take the time...

#EthicalChristmas: Priyananda On The People Behind Windhorse Books

By Centre Team on Sun, 23 Nov, 2014 - 15:31Windhorse Publications originated as the main publisher of Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Order. Do you still publish books by Sangharakshita or is your focus now on publishing books by other authors?

We do still publish books by Sangharakshita, but because he is in his old age now, he is writing far less. The most recent of his books that we have put out are previously unpublished material from his early life, ...

#EthicalChristmas: The Ethics Of Publishing In A Digital Age

By Centre Team on Sat, 22 Nov, 2014 - 13:44The publishing industry is in the process of going through a huge, seismic change.

In addition, some companies are adopting dubious methods to make up for decreased profit margins – the recent tax avoidance schemes of certain...
