Daily Dharma

A stable, solid body is a mental image superimposed onto a stream of events in the same way that a spinning propeller is seen as a circle. The constant succession of discrete acts of cognition or feeling appears as a monolithic event, just as the rapid change of frames in a film appears as a smooth continuum.


– The Dalai Lama and Thubten Chodron, “An Unbroken Sequence”

The Art of Somatic Mindfulness

Lama Willa Blythe Baker helps us access the body’s wisdom through an exploration of the four layers of embodiment: the physical, energetic, mental, and integrative. These layers are increasingly subtle, and Lama Miller explains how we can develop our awareness as we attune to them. By learning to listen more closely to our bodies, we can open our hearts and liberate our minds, opening the door to a deeper engagement with the world.

Current Issue

Winter 2021

Tricycle’s latest issue looks to the past and the future, examining what we can learn from past actions to enact future change. In “When America Met Thich Nhat Hanh,” peace activist Jim Forest reflects on his experiences with the Zen master’s engaged Buddhist action. In “How to Bring Our Planet Back to Life,” environmentalist Paul Hawken argues that to save our planet, we need to create a world worth saving. Other features include an interview with playwright Sarah Ruhl about how Buddhist teachings helped her cope with Bell’s palsy and the COVID-19 pandemic; a portfolio featuring the multimedia works of artist Chitra Ganesh; and a look at how Buddhists have addressed—or ignored—the adverse effects of meditation, a.k.a. “Buddhism’s Biggest Open Secret.”
