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  • previously unpublished poems from his early years 
  • six short stories, some of them previously unpublished
  • a foreword by Padmavajra
  • a guide for the new
  • ...

In deep gratitude to my teacher who has given me so much, my favourite of his poems.

INVOCATION

Field-freshening rain,
White night-rain lingering on in drizzles till the dawn,
Pools of bright silver making, birthing streams
In dry clay river-beds, pour down, O rain,
All day, all night, pour down pour down, O rain,
Pour down…

World-welfaring Compassion,
Void-born Compassion diamond-hard and petal-tender,
Peace to wild heartwaves bringing, birthing love
On the low...

Holidays, Poems, Shrines and Sangha Night

By padmatara on Wed, 2 Oct, 2013 - 16:09Dear Friends,

I already felt lucky to be in this community during the ups and downs of the last year or so, and now some very generous friends have given me a holiday in Kauai - leaving tomorrow, back next Tuesday. I can’t tell you how great it feels to be looking forward to something like this.

I wanted to make sure you all have the poems from Suvarnaprabha’s funeral - so I’ve copied them below.
