Daily Dharma

In meditation we learn to cultivate and stretch the moments of being unencumbered, those places of non-suffering. We can experience the state of non-suffering with each breath, moment by moment, breathing in and breathing out.

– Zenju Earthlyn Manuel, “The Terror Within”

Daily wisdom, teachings & critique

Current Issue

Summer 2021

In Tricycle’s latest issue, teachers, artists, and writers explore the evolution of Buddhist social engagement and the challenges practitioners still face. Pamela Ayo Yetunde and Cheryl A. Giles—the editors of the anthology Black and Buddhist—discuss what the dharma and the experience of Black people in America can teach us about the nature of suffering and freedom; scholar Donald S. Lopez writes about how, for most of its history, Buddhist teachings have had little to offer social activism; the photography of Burmese artist Nge Lay illuminates how Myanmar’s past and present collide; and Rev. Dr. Kenneth Tanaka observes that within one US city, we can find a greater diversity of Buddhist traditions living side by side than has ever existed before and asks what that means for the future.

The Steadying Power of Patience

Soto Zen monks Chiken and Ryugyo, two classmates, grapple with the trauma of Japan’s post-Fukushima socio-economic crisis while trying to lead their respective temples. Tenzo freely blends fact and fiction in a genre-bending experimental tale based on real Soto Zen monks.
