Daily Dharma

Gratitude, the simple and profound feeling of being thankful, is the foundation of all generosity… Generosity requires that we relinquish something, and this is impossible if we are not glad for what we have.

– Sallie Tisdale, “As If There is Nothing to Lose”

Current Issue

Tricycle Magazine cover

With this issue Tricycle introduces a comprehensive new design. Beyond the new look, readers will find front sections that foster dialogue within the Tricycle community, let you in on what’s happening right now in the Buddhist world, and provide practical teachings for day-to-day life.

In “The Human Deity,” our cover story, contributing editor Kurt Spellmeyer takes on different schools’ representations of the Buddha: was he human or divine? Journalist Judith Hertog investigates why a rapidly growing Buddhist community insists that it alone teaches the one, pure dharma, and our editors look at the sometimes-shaky science behind mindfulness and meditation studies.  

We also share lesser-known Buddhist practices for personal and collective harmony in our special section “Meditations Off the Beaten Path,” including a daily practice to foster gratitude and a visualization for interconnection.

Feeling Secure in an Unstable World

Internal investigation plays a key role in our ability to overcome feelings of anxiety and insecurity, develop a secure base, and establish healthy relationships with others. In our latest course, we'll explore a variety of insights and practices—drawn from early Buddhism and contemporary psychology—that can help us acknowledge and process emotional experiences that destabilize us—and discover how to thrive in a disconnected world.

The Last Dalai Lama?

The Last Dalai Lama?

In Mickey Lemle’s new award-winning documentary, The Last Dalai Lama?, the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, takes a look at his legacy as he enters the ninth decade of his life. Rather than presenting a linear story, the film offers an endearing, candid portrait of the Tibetan leader’s life by weaving together historical photos, rare interviews with an all-star cast—including Thupten Jinpa, Matthieu Ricard, and Daniel Goleman—and archival footage from Lemle’s 1992 biopic, Compassion in Exile.
