Introducing a biography of Sangharakshita

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 16 Nov, 2022 - 12:45

We’re delighted to introduce a biography of Sangharakshita, due for publication in February. It’s Sangharakshita: The Boy, the Monk, the Man by Nagabodhi, and we’d like to invite you to consider sponsoring it.

It’s now four years since Sangharakshita’s death. Unlike generations before, people new to the Triratna Buddhist Community or interested in the spread of Buddhism in India and internationally can no longer meet and encounter him directly. So Windhorse Publications commissioned this book. We asked Nagabodhi to write something that...

New podcast episode: A Buddhist guide to digital life

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 19 Oct, 2022 - 11:15

A lot of life is spent online these days. It is the medium for news, entertainment, work, debate and perspective, music, keeping up with friends, dating, and, for some, pornography.

In our latest podcast episode, Dhammamegha speaks with new author Prajnaketu about his upcoming book Cyberloka: A Buddhist guide to digital life. Prajnaketu wants to open up ways of thinking and talking about our digital lives that draw on the teachings of the Buddha. 

We talk about hyper-availability and how to go mindfully into our...

Introducing 'The Promise of a Sacred World'

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 23 Mar, 2022 - 07:00

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...

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...
