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...

Review: I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism by Alice Collett

Review: I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism by Alice Collett

By Liz Evers on Fri, 9 Jul, 2021 - 17:27

The last two decades have seen a growth in Western scholarship about women in Buddhism. 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. Klein have conducted feminist re-evaluations of Buddhism, while others have explored the experiences of women practising in specific cultures (for example, Martine Batchelor on her experience as a Jogye Zen...

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...

Celebrating International Women's Day with Windhorse Publications

By Sadayasihi on Mon, 8 Mar, 2021 - 08:00

Vajradevi’s first book Uncontrived Mindfulness: ending suffering through attention, curiosity and wisdom will be published by Windhorse Publications at the end of March. In this short clip for Women’s Day, Dhammamegha interviews Vajradevi about writing, about friendship as a context for learning and teaching, and about being a woman practitioner.

By far the majority of authors published by Windhorse Publications in the past have been men. This year we have Vajradevi’s book, as well as also...
