The COVID-19 crisis has affected us all differently. I’ve been very aware of the situation in India and the work Triratna charities are doing there to meet the material and spiritual needs of people with fewer protections than exist in many other parts of the world. To raise money for one of these charities, the Karuna Trust, I’ve recorded an album of Buddhist mantras. The album has raised £917 so far, but with a fundraising target of £5,000 there’s still a...

Week 12 of free eBooks with 'Free the Dharma'

Mon, 8 Jun, 2020 - 12:15

I find it hard to believe we’re now into the twelfth week of our Free the Dharma eBook giveaway. When we began it back in March, we had no idea it would still be running almost three months later. For most people, the past three months have been especially challenging. Whenever I’m feeling challenged, there are two main supports I turn to: friends and books; particularly books about the Dharma. I feel heartened to know that, thanks to Free the...

Mon, 11 May, 2020 - 13:21

This is the eighth week that we’ll be sharing a weekly e-book. When we started in March, it seemed likely that it would be something we’d do for a month or two at the most. Yet here we are, two months later, and this new future stretches before us. 

This week we’re giving away Subhuti’s Mind in Harmony: the psychology of Buddhist ethics. You can download it free here until 25 May. You can also buy a paper copy here

This week’s free eBook is A Deeper Beauty: Buddhist Reflections on Everyday Life by Paramananda. You can download it here until 18 May
 
One sentence from Paramananda struck me over the weekend: “We suffer from a form of forgetfulness brought about by the lack of spaciousness.” 
 
This book is a beautiful guide, within whatever time you have, to finding a path into spaciousness. Through poetry and reflections, Paramananda lives and teaches how to take the time...

This week we’re giving away The Buddha on Wall Street by Vaddhaka in our Free the Dharma Campaign. You can download it here until the 11th of May. 

The lockdown is having a huge impact on economies at all levels – households, businesses, countries. The future is uncertain. While it has does economic damage, it also relieves the pressures on the environment, and perhaps to some of us too.  

There is no better guide to thinking through what Buddhism can offer to our common and economic life than this...

As the coronavirus situation rolls out across the world, there has been a proliferation of creativity – everything from amateur dramatics and puns to the broadcasting of art and music. Some high-profile musicians have been live streaming from their bedrooms. 

Art in all its forms allows us to be fully human, to create meaning and to nurture what unites us. That’s why this week’s free eBook is The Poet’s Way by Manjusvara. You can download it here. It will be available until the...

Announcing our 'Stay at Home Sale' for April

Wed, 1 Apr, 2020 - 17:00

There’s never been a better time to read! 
 
We find ourselves in an unprecedented situation. There is a lot to respond to, to think about and to process. Staying at home, you might well be spending more time online than ever. Perhaps your thoughts and emotions have taken on the pace and tone of newsfeeds and daily data: quick, scattered, and emotionally overwhelming.
 
In this month’s Stay at Home Sale we’ve gathered five books...
