Tricycle Magazine cover

Snakes. Flying. Disease. Dogs. You name it—someone fears it. The special section in Tricycle’s latest issue features Buddhists who weigh in on living despite and amidst our anxieties. Dharma Punx guiding teacher Josh Korda describes how to meet terror with tenderness in “A Safe Container for Fear”; creative writing professor Daisy Hernández discusses her mother’s once undocumented status and the worry that kept her from writing about it earlier in “Learning to Speak the Truth”; and Buddhist nun Marcela Clavijo explains “What Green Tara Can Teach Us about Fear.” (Spoiler: She’ll show you how to recognize and overcome it.)

Wandering

Wandering

When Nob, an aging Thai villager, loses his job, his son, and his wife in quick succession, he turns to drink to soothe his pain. As he wanders drunkenly through Thailand’s dense jungles without hope or purpose, an encounter with a solitary forest monk sparks a desire in him to rectify his failures and commit to the monastic life. This award-winning drama is a story not of redemption but of renunciation, and it offers a rare look into a Thai forest monk’s ascetic practice.
