Daily Dharma

Freedom from identity is what allows and enables us to be truly human—to be an ongoing response to the challenges, demands, and needs of life.

– Ken McLeod, “Forget About Being A Buddhist. Be A Human.”

Current Issue

Tricycle Magazine cover

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Myanmar lies at the heart of Tricycle’s Spring 2018 issue. American imam Khalid Latif heads to the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh; Southeast Asia–based journalist Joe Freeman provides five takes on Myanmar’s leader; and professor Johan Elverskog offers a historical perspective on the long and largely peaceful history of Buddhist and Muslim interaction. 

Plus, this issue includes powerful advice for meditation from the 10th-century Indian master Tilopa; an essay by Zen Buddhist priest Zenju Earthlyn Manuel on how those who have been displaced and discriminated against may begin to reclaim a sense of home; and author and translator C. W. Huntington, Jr.’s thoughts on whether we’re looking to Buddhism when we should be looking to therapy.

Read these pieces and more in our Spring 2018 issue.

My Buddha Is Punk

My Buddha Is Punk

Twenty-five-year-old Burmese punk musician Kyaw Kyaw is on a mission. He and his band, The Rebel Riot, travel Myanmar playing music and organizing demonstrations to raise awareness about the persecution of the country’s ethnic minorities. The band’s unique blend of ideals—one part Buddhist compassion, two parts punk rock rebellion—fuels their quest for equality and freedom for all in contemporary Myanmar.

The Essence of Awakening

The Essence of Awakening

Why do we suffer? How can we restructure our worldview in a way that aligns with the way things really are and leads to less dissatisfaction? Tackle these questions from a Mahayana Buddhist perspective in our newest course, where we'll deconstruct what we “know” to be true and learn how to cultivate the wisdom of selflessness, emptiness, and compassion.
