About

We created this page on the day we heard of Bhante's death, to give people an opportunity to express their gratitude for his life and work.

Event details

Completing a project dear to Bhante's heart

Bhante Sangharakshita’s wish was to see "a complete, uniform edition" of all his writings, published and unpublished. 

Many people's generous gifts for Bhante’s 90th birthday began to fulfil this wish with the launch by Windhorse Publications of The Complete Works Project in 2015. Bhante was delighted:

"I feel very grateful to all those whose efforts are bringing the project from dream to reality. May you all be blessed in your labours, which will surely bear fruit for many, many years to come."

Eight of the 27 volumes have been published  by Windhorse so far and four more will appear in April 2019. 

However, the project is facing a funding crisis. It is now clear that nine years and not five will be needed for the editing work; and the production costs are higher than expected too. This is putting Windhorse Publications under serious financial strain.

If between us we can give another £90,000 then the remaining 15 volumes will be published over the next five years, and Bhante's wish will be fulfilled.

‘The history of my Going for Refuge’ and ‘Wisdom beyond Words’ transformed my understanding of my faith. May the wisdom in your Collected Works inspire many other seekers of Truth to Go for Refuge to the Three Jewels.
