Announcing ‘The Burning House’ and another free eBook

Fri, 5 Feb, 2021 - 10:30

We’re delighted to announce that in August we’ll be publishing Shantigarbha’s latest book, The Burning House: A Buddhist Response to the Climate and Ecological Emergency. It’s an incredibly timely book, with the potential to have a significant impact.

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'

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...
