Daily Dharma

When confusion and ignorance have been definitively eliminated, and goodness, caring, and wisdom have entirely taken their place, that is true happiness.

– Pamela Gayle White, “A Slow, True Path”

Current Issue

Spring 2019

Ever relevant to today’s most pressing topics, this issue of Tricycle examines what national identity means by revisiting the experiences of Japanese American Buddhists during World War Two. Deemed a threat to US security, these practitioners found refuge in their faith in internment camps, ultimately forging an eclectic tradition that would shape Buddhism’s emergence in the West. In “Tolerably Black,” Nichiren Buddhist artist Aretha Busby talks about how we can reckon with the American history of slavery from a place of compassion, and scholar Linda Heuman unpacks conversations between the Dalai Lama and climate scientists on what’s needed to save our planet.

Plus, learn to gauge when to speak and when to listen by applying a simple practice in self-awareness and meet the “Coconut Monk,” a peace-loving yogi living on a bizarro Buddhist island in wartime Vietnam.
