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

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...
