Windhorse Publications' review of the year

By Helen - Windhor... on Wed, 21 Dec, 2022 - 16:03

As 2022 draws to a close, we’re looking back at the past year. And what a year it’s been!

Behind the scenes in 2022

This year has been a tough one for small independent publishers. So it’s been a balancing act for Dhammamegha as Publishing Director, as we ride the waves of high printing costs and disrupted freight, to make sure that we have all the Dharma books we need in the Triratna community, and that Windhorse Publications is continuing to grow and make...

We've started a podcast!

Dhammamegha here again. I was in my teens and having a bit of a rough time when I first had a spontaneous experience of great expansiveness and love. It was suffused with peace and proved to be a turning point in my life.

Before the Internet, and relying on a small suburban library in Cape Town, I looked for anything that might resonate with that experience. And that’s when I found my first Dharma books. They helped me to keep in touch...

The Therīgāthā, a selection of 73 poems by enlightened Buddhist nuns over a 300-year period from the sixth century BCE, has had multiple recent translations and commentaries. Scholars including Rita Gross and Anne C.
