About Windhorse Publications
At Windhorse Publications we produce life-changing Buddhist books for all levels of involvement in the Dharma life, from the complete beginner to the experienced practitioner. We are the main publisher of Sangharakshita and we also publish Dharma books by members of the Triratna community and some practitioner-scholars outside the movement.
Giulietta from Windhorse Publications writes: “We are looking forward to two new books coming out this summer - I’ll Meet You There by Shantigarbha and Satipatthāna Meditation: A Practice Guide by Bhikkhu Anālayo. As we’re a small charity, we ask that you please consider sponsoring one or both to help us with publication costs. Those contributing sponsorships of £30 or more will receive the eBook and paperback upon publication.
