Ten thousand flowers in spring, the moon in autumn, a cool breeze in summer, snow in winter. If your mind isn’t clouded by unnecessary things, this is the best season of your life.

Current Issue

Fall 2019

Tricycle’s Fall 2019 issue frames questions of our modern, global, and political world in a Buddhist context. With stories of Buddhists working toward more equal societies and practices for facing anger and hopelessness, this issue offers guidance and encouragement toward both personal and collective progress.

In an excerpt from her first new book of spiritual teachings in over seven years, Pema Chödrön explains how a simple shift in perspective can pull us out of despair; Rhonda Magee, author of The Inner Work of Racial Justice, offers a practice for how to calmly uncover our internalized biases in “Making the Invisible Visible”; Ken McLeod teaches four meditations for working with anger; and Caitlin Dwyer interviews a leader of the Thai feminist movement about the relationship between Buddhism and feminism in Southeast Asia.
