This week's eBook give away - The Body

By dhammamegha on Mon, 22 Jun, 2020 - 14:21

The high streets are waking from their slumber, and we’re anticipating further easing of the lockdown. There are many questions; is it safe, when will travel be possible, when can I spend time with friends and loved ones in person again, what will happen with work and the economy?

Like many others I’ve also been involved in conversations about race and the growing anti-racism movement. I’ve been thinking about my own place and what I can do, exploring my conditioning, and listening...

June book sale at Windhorse Publications

By dhammamegha on Mon, 1 Jun, 2020 - 12:59

Lockdown rules are changing for some of us. So perhaps there’s not quite so much staying at home involved this month’s Stay at Home Sale. We have chosen a range of books to offer resources and inspiration in this transition time. 
 
To continue the ‘For the Earth’ theme of Buddhist Action Month, we’ve got what I think is the only one of our books to be written by a vet. Bodhipaksa’s Vegetarianism: A Buddhist View, is reduced...

This week we’re giving away Subhuti’s Mind in Harmony: the psychology of Buddhist ethics. You can download it free here until 25 May. You can also buy a paper copy here

This week’s free eBook is A Deeper Beauty: Buddhist Reflections on Everyday Life by Paramananda. You can download it here until 18 May
 
One sentence from Paramananda struck me over the weekend: “We suffer from a form of forgetfulness brought about by the lack of spaciousness.” 
 
This book is a beautiful guide, within whatever time you have, to finding a path into spaciousness. Through poetry and reflections, Paramananda lives and teaches how to take the time...
