Here at Windhorse Publications we’re busy preparing for the release in April of the next three volumes of The Complete Works of Sangharakshita. One of these is Volume 25, Poems and Short Stories, now available for pre-order.
You may already be familiar with Sangharakshita’s Complete Poems, published in 1994. Even if you already have a copy, this new volume is worth buying, as it contains over one hundred pages of extra material:
all the poems Sangharakshita wrote after 1994
previously unpublished poems from his early years
six short stories, some of them previously unpublished
Priyananda, who has been at the helm of Windhorse Publications for the past ten years, is stepping down as director in March. Windhorse Publications are the main publisher of Sangharakshita, the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order. They also publish on the whole range of the Buddhist tradition, investing in books by authors such as Anālayo, Vimalasara, Vaddhaka and many others to better communicate Buddhism clearly in the 21st century.
We’re looking for a volunteer to provide temporary, part-time customer service cover while Helen is on leave.
Initially, we need cover for 8th–15th May 2020. This will involve up to 12 hours’ work (up to 2 hours per weekday; timing flexible). You’ll be working from home – or wherever you like! All you’ll need is a computer and an Internet connection.
The work is interesting and you’ll gain some experience of one aspect of a small publishing business. Ideally, you’ll be able to visit...
We’re thrilled to announce the first six of the new books we’ll be publishing in 2020. Three of them are now available for sponsorship. Why sponsor a book? Publishing in the 21st century is all about adapting to challenging conditions, with lower profits from online sales and increased competition from digital formats. At Windhorse Publications we are meeting this challenge, but we increasingly need start-up funding for a book’s production and marketing. You can help us by choosing to sponsor...
Last month the team at Windhorse Publications had the pleasure of welcoming intern Gayathri Mahesh one day a week for four weeks. A graduate in Civil Engineering from Chennai, India, Gayathri has a passion for writing and is currently studying for an MA in Creative Writing and Publishing at Anglia Ruskin University.
Gayathri achieved a lot in only four days. Her first task was to liaise with publishing director, Priyananda, to gather information about on-demand printing. This included arranging phone interviews...

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing the well-loved and highly respected meditation teacher, Paramananda, about his latest book, The Myth of Meditation. Here’s a transcript of excerpts from the interview.
In the title of the book, why do you describe meditation as a myth?
Paramananda: I can’t really give you a better answer to that than the subtitle [restoring imaginal ground through embodied Buddhist practice]. It was an attempt to relocate meditation in what I understood its original setting to be, which is a...
The team at Windhorse Publications is thrilled to announce the release of Mindfulness of Breathing: A Practice Guide and Translations, by renowned Buddhist teacher and scholar, Bhikkhu Anālayo.
Mindfulness of breathing meditation is a core practice in many branches of Buddhism and is one of the two foundational meditation practices taught and practised in the Triratna Buddhist Community.
