Allowing a friend to explore a guided meditation CD or book on Buddhism, meditation or mindfulness can be a wonderful way to support him/her through the season. As stated in the Dhammapada, “The gift of the Dhamma surpasses all gifts.”

We at Windhorse Publications have just published the very first of the 27 volumes that will comprise The Complete Works of Sangharakshita; a momentous step in our project of gathering together this great teacher’s output including Dharma teachings of many kinds, commentaries, memoirs, poetry and more. This first volume, volume 9 in the series, is entitled, Dr Ambedkar and the Revival of Buddhism I. It includes Sangharakshita’s Ambedkar and Buddhism, which has been out-of-print for some time, along with 36 talks given in India...

Well done WP! I have been talking to some friends at Adhisthana who could more easily afford to subscribe with a monthly payment. Might you offer this?

Giulietta - Windhorse Publications's picture

Thank you, Amalavajra.  We do understand the struggle to afford this on a lower income.  At the moment, we aren’t considering monthly payments, mainly as this would greatly complicate our ‘backroom management’ but also it would affect how we present subscriptions on our site and render existing publicity obsolete.  However, if we get many more requests we will reconsider.

Sangharakshita turned 91 on 26 August this year. This greatly respected teacher has left a legacy of wise and clearly written (and spoken) work introducing and going deeper into the Dharma. His books include such classics as The Bodhisattva Ideal, A Guide to the Buddhist Path and The Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. His writings go far to clarify the practices for the Buddhist order he founded, the Triratna Order, which is worldwide, and adaptable to very different countries, as seen...
