The capacity to recognize and accept where we are and to investigate what must be changed to minimize the harm that our own views and blindspots cause others is essential to the work of racial justice. And the capacity to do all of this with as little attachment and identification to the outcome is essential to true liberation.

Current Issue

Fall 2019

Tricycle’s Fall 2019 issue frames questions of our modern, global, and political world in a Buddhist context. With stories of Buddhists working toward more equal societies and practices for facing anger and hopelessness, this issue offers guidance and encouragement toward both personal and collective progress.

In an excerpt from her first new book of spiritual teachings in over seven years, Pema Chödrön explains how a simple shift in perspective can pull us out of despair; Rhonda Magee, author of The Inner Work of Racial Justice, offers a practice for how to calmly uncover our internalized biases in “Making the Invisible Visible”; Ken McLeod teaches four meditations for working with anger; and Caitlin Dwyer interviews a leader of the Thai feminist movement about the relationship between Buddhism and feminism in Southeast Asia.

At its heart is an easy acronym we can all learn to apply, ELSA: Embrace, Let go, See, and Act. Join Stephen and Martine Batchelor as they clarify the core elements of Buddhist thought and meditation practice for the way we live today.
