URTHONA Buddhist arts magazine
We cover contemporary and traditional arts from a Buddhist perspective. Our inspirations are William Blake, the zen poets of Japan, creative pioneers of all ages. Urthona, appearing once a year, is a beautifully designed, 68 page, glossy magazine. Each issue contains 10 pages of new poetry, a copious reviews section, news and fascinating articles.
