Sangharakshita Books

‘When you read my books, you are very much in contact with me.’

My Relation to the Order

Over the course of his life, Sangharakshita published over 70 books. They included Dharma teachings and commentaries, poetry, memoirs, essays, letters and biography. 

In 2015, Sangharakshita turned 90. When asked what he would most like as a gift from the movement he founded, he expressed a wish for his complete works to be published. The huge task of bringing together all his literary output and making it available in one high-quality set of publications has been underway since then and is now two-thirds complete. 

Sangharakshita's Complete Works are published by Windhorse Publications and edited by Vidyadevi and Kalyanaprabha, with Pabodhana. The covers are designed by Dhammarati. Each volume features a foreword by an order member and extensive notes with easy-to-locate references to the suttas, sutras and commentaries, to the poetry and prose on which Sangharakshita drew. The final volume will be an extensive concordance.

You'll find below information about all 27 volumes and links to buy them individually.
