About Us

Windhorse Publications

Windhorse Publications is a Buddhist charitable company based in the UK.

Our books, which are distributed internationally, champion Buddhism, meditation, and mindfulness. They offer fresh interpretations of Buddhist teachings and their application to contemporary life, with subject matter and authors from across the Buddhist tradition, catering for a broad range of interest and experience.

In addition to publishing titles exploring classic texts for modern audiences, we aspire to publish books that offer a Buddhist perspective on today’s challenges, including social inequality, the environment and climate, gender, mental health, and more.

Established in the 1970s to publish the writing of Urgyen Sangharakshita (1925–2018), the founder of the Triratna Buddhist Order, Windhorse Publications continues to be dedicated to preserving and keeping in print his impressive and influential body of work, making it accessible for future generations.

As well as high quality print and eBooks, Windhorse Publications produces accompanying audio, podcast, video, and teaching resources.

Our name

The Windhorse is a mythical animal that flies over the earth carrying on its back three precious jewels, bringing these invaluable gifts to all humanity: the Buddha (the ‘awakened one’), his teaching, and the community of all his followers.
