Introducing 'The Promise of a Sacred World'

Dhammamegha here. Every few years we receive a manuscript that has been growing for decades within the author; a book that breaks new ground and offers a fresh and considered engagement with one of the Buddhist classics.

Bhikkhu Anālayo did this with Satipaṭṭhāna, through his translations and commentaries on the four foundations of mindfulness. Ratnaguna and Śraddhāpa did this with practice and awakening in the Pure Land Sutras in Great Faith, Great Wisdom. In 2019 we published David...

Out now: ‘I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism’

By Helen - Windhor... on Fri, 18 Jun, 2021 - 13:00

As a female student and practitioner of Buddhism, at times I feel frustrated by the underrepresentation of women in Buddhist texts and iconography. To give just one example, out of the forty-six figures on Triratna’s refuge tree, only two are female. Frustrated I may be, but I probably shouldn’t be surprised. As author Alice Collett points out in Windhorse Publications’ latest release, I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism, Buddhism was born and developed within ancient...

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

We are very pleased to announce the release of Vajradevi’s first book, Uncontrived Mindfulness: Ending Suffering through Attention, Curiosity and Wisdom. 

The Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta is a foundational text in the Buddhist tradition, outlining a path of increasing awareness and wisdom.
