Dhammamegha here. I’m very pleased to be writing to tell you about a new book we will publish in November, and to ask you to be part of making it happen. The book has been written by Prajnaketu, and it’s called Cyberloka: A Buddhist Guide to Digital Life.
This book is just what we need right now when our capacity to deal creatively with being online so much hasn’t caught up with the amazing technology and media we’re using. Through...
Today we take a look at the last of the volumes of the Complete Works of Sangharakshita to come out in July this year. Volume 26 is called Aphorisms, the Arts, and Late Writings, and it was edited by the seemingly indefatigable Vidyadevi.
Publishing this volume is cause to celebrate the arts in Triratna, so in the Community Highlights section, we’ll point you to two recent self-published books around Buddhism and the arts, from paintings to poetry and beyond.
Today we’re offering a sneak peek into another of the upcoming volumes in Sangharakshita’s Complete Works, and the next instalment in our Team Picks series, where members of the Windhorse Publications team review a Windhorse book that they’ve enjoyed reading. We also have news about a popular book of Sangharakshita’s that’s now back in print.

Dhammamegha here. Every few years we receive a manuscript that has been growing for decades within the author; a book that breaks new ground and offers a fresh and considered engagement with one of the Buddhist classics.
Bhikkhu Anālayo did this with Satipaṭṭhāna, through his translations and commentaries on the four foundations of mindfulness. Ratnaguna and Śraddhāpa did this with practice and awakening in the Pure Land Sutras in Great Faith, Great Wisdom. In 2019 we published David...
We’re excited to announce a new, money-saving way of buying volumes from The Complete Works of Sangharakshita: The Complete Works Study Bundle.

There are three variations of The Complete Works Study Bundle: hardback, paperback and eBook, costing £120, £90 and £60 respectively. All are great...

The Puja Book
