Daily Dharma

Cultivating skillful effort, we learn to distinguish the “right” amount of effort. Not too little. Not too much. Just right. In tune. When we find the right pitch, our practice flourishes.

– Peter Doobinin, “Skillful Effort”

Current Issue

Fall 2020

The Fall 2020 issue of Tricycle, assembled during the continued global spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus and in the midst of a racial justice movement that challenges Western society’s status quo, provides Buddhist teachings, practices, and essays meant for both deep restoration and contemplation. In an excerpt from her new book, Insight Meditation teacher Sebene Selassie explains how mindfulness of unpleasant sensations in the body can lead to feelings of acceptance and belonging; Toni Bernhard offers practices for dealing with fear and loneliness; and psychotherapist Mindy Newman and translator Kaia Fischer demonstrate how even modest acts can have major consequences by sharing a newly translated ancient story about Buddha. One can also find the award-winning writer Charles Johnson’s advice for future generations on living without hatred in an interconnected society, secular Buddhist teacher Stephen Batchelor’s view on how Buddhism must change if its followers are to grapple with the climate crisis, and more.

In this Dharma Talk series, the Bön Buddhist master Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche teaches meditation practices that can help us respond to those emotions from a place of calm awareness instead of fear.
