Out now: ‘I Hear Her Words: An Introduction to Women in Buddhism’

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

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...
