This week’s free eBook from Windhorse Publications is Ritual and Devotion in Buddhism: An Introduction by Sangharakshita. If you’ve not already done so, don’t forget to check out the discounted paperbacks in their monthly sale.
In Ritual and Devotion in Buddhism Sangharakshita explains that knowledge alone cannot take us very far along the spiritual path, and he reveals the power of devotional practices to help us commit ourselves to spiritual change with all our hearts. While ritual can bring us closer to our highest ideals, Sangharakshita acknowledges that it can be a confronting aspect of Buddhism for some people in the West. Skilfully steering us through the difficulties we may encounter, he leads us through the Sevenfold Puja and gives us a feeling for the depth of spiritual practice to be contacted through reciting devotional verses, making offerings and chanting mantras.
It’s not too late to download last week’s free eBook, The Yogi’s Joy, also by Sangharakshita. It will remain free until the 17th of August.
