Summer reading ideas from Windhorse Publications

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...

Another free eBook from Windhorse Publications

Fri, 14 May, 2021 - 14:32

A line from a poem by Damian Barr has been widely quoted recently: ‘We are in the same storm, but not in the same boat.’ In some places the winds of COVID-19 are raging, and the boats are not seaworthy. In India. In Brazil. Amongst those who have lost much in the last year, one way or another. So, this week we’re giving away the eBook edition of Vessantara’s The Heart, a guide to cultivating a boundless, loving heart that...

We are very pleased to announce the release of Vajradevi’s first book, Uncontrived Mindfulness: Ending Suffering through Attention, Curiosity and Wisdom. 

The Satipaṭṭhāna Sutta is a foundational text in the Buddhist tradition, outlining a path of increasing awareness and wisdom. Over many years, Vajradevi has drawn on a range of approaches to the practice of satipaṭṭhāna: within Triratna as well as with U Tejaniya in the Burmese meditation tradition and some teachers of the Insight Meditation Society. What she offers us...

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy back in print

Wed, 27 Jan, 2021 - 12:08

Sangharakshita’s Three Jewels trilogy (Who is the Buddha?, What is the Dharma? and What is the Sangha?) is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Buddhism. It provides an elucidation of the three central principles on which Buddhism is based: the Buddha, who represents the principle of ‘awakening’; the Dharma, the teachings and practices that cultivate awakening; and the Sangha, the principle of spiritual friendship. For quite some time, both Who is the Buddha? and What is the Sangha? have been out of print. We’re pleased...

Introducing 'I Hear Her Words'

Wed, 16 Dec, 2020 - 16:00

We’re delighted to announce that in May we’ll be publishing I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism by Alice Collett.  

Core Buddhist doctrines and ethical formulations provide no justification for the notion that women are inferior to men. However, Buddhism was born and took root in ancient and medieval societies that held traditional views of women. In this way, social and cultural norms positioning women as inferior to men found their way into Buddhist tradition and some Buddhist texts. As...

A new audiobook

One of our best-selling titles has just been released as an audiobook. It’s the award-wining Eight Step Recovery: Using the Buddha’s Teachings to Overcome Addiction by Valerie Mason-John (Vimalasara) and Dr Paramabandhu Groves.

Human nature has an inbuilt tendency towards addiction. Many of us self-medicate in response to hardships, turning to food, drugs, alcohol, sex, relationships, work, and so much more in an attempt to promote happiness. All of us can struggle with these tendencies, but for some it can lead to the...
