Out now: 'The Burning House' by Shantigarbha

By Helen - Windhor... on Mon, 23 Aug, 2021 - 15:15

2021 has been one of the hottest years on record in many parts of the globe. There have been wildfires in California, Turkey, Italy, Greece and Siberia as well as floods in the UK, Germany, Belgium, India and China. The continued existence of humans and other species is at risk if we don’t change our ways. 

António Guterres, the UN Secretary General, warned: ‘This is a code red for humanity. The alarm bells are deafening, and the evidence is undisputable:...

Growing Food and Spiritual Practice

By Liz Evers on Sat, 24 Jul, 2021 - 14:17

Learning to grow my own food has led to a big shift in consciousness – from the detachment of living exclusively on restaurant-served or shop-bought produce to the grounding intimacy of eating home-grown fruit and veg – and helped me greatly on the path toward veganism.

In 2015 I got involved in a community garden in inner city Dublin, not far from the Dublin Buddhist Centre (DBC). At the time I was living in a first floor flat with no outside...

Summer reading ideas from Windhorse Publications

By Helen - Windhor... on Fri, 14 May, 2021 - 14:39

With summer in the northern hemisphere fast approaching, and infections under control in many places, including here in the UK, lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease. What joy to be able to spend time together again! Some of us are making plans to go away on holiday, even if the choice of destination is somewhat limited. 

We’re really proud of our new books this year and we think any – or all! – of them would make great summer reading. Whether...

By Helen - Windhor... on Fri, 5 Feb, 2021 - 10:30

We’re delighted to announce that in August we’ll be publishing Shantigarbha’s latest book, The Burning House: A Buddhist Response to the Climate and Ecological Emergency.

In it, Shantigarbha explores how we can wake up and respond to the climate and ecological crisis from a Buddhist perspective. It will be of interest both to Buddhists concerned about the climate and ecology, and to eco-activists wishing to ground their work...

Sangha Night Buddhism, Mondays, 19:00

On 1, 8 and 15 June, Sangha night will focus on the theme for Buddhist Action Month, which this year is …for the Earth. We will explore what we want to do or say ‘for the Earth’, with short talks, discussion and ritual and with reference to the Brahmaviharas – specifically Metta (love), Karuna (compassion) and Mudita (joy). These weeks will be led by Karunagita with support from Katja and the Sangha night team.

Meeting The Needs Of The World

By Candradasa on Wed, 3 Aug, 2016 - 23:39

A strong set of short talks as befits the title to start us off on day two of the 2016 Triratna International Council. 

Parami introduces Akuppa challenging us to examine our responses to the possible realities of climate change; Viveka, asking us with great feeling to be curious about the possibilities for diversity amid the realities of deep-seated conditioning around racial bias; and Yashosagar inviting us to embrace the Buddha’s vision of the Dhamma as an adequate response to...
