Welcome to the OBC Journal. The Journal area of this site lets readers download current and past issues, make available archives of published articles, allow you to give us feedback, and offer help if you want to know how to send in an article, how to subscribe, or need other information.
The Journal is published four times a year from the Journal office at Throssel Hole Buddhist Abbey in the north of England. Articles from around the Order are combined to make a publication of around 80 to a hundred pages. The Journal is now available as a free pdf download, and as a kindle eBook from Amazon, US version for $3.43, (£2.06, UK version – also available worldwide). We receive 70 % of the Amazon price to help cover the cost of conversion to eBook format (£300 per issue).
For more information you can sign up to our new email newsletter at this page: http://journal.obcon.org/e-newsletter-sign-up/ and on that page there is a link to previous issues of the newsletter if you want to catch up on past news.
A selection of articles from each issue and some previous is also published on this website. For more information on our history and purpose and the kind of articles we publish you can go to the About the Journal page. You are welcome to contact us if would like to get a free complimentary copy sent to you, so you can try it out.
The Journal has always been a collaborative project, as we rely on people to send in articles, support us financially with their subscriptions and offer help in other ways, such as transcribing talks and proofreading.
