Daily Dharma

The most wrenching fear that one experiences is the fear one feels for others. Love is like that. When one loves, one fears for the other.

– Dharmavidya David Brazier, “The Gift of Fear”

Tricycle Magazine cover

Snakes. Flying. Disease. Dogs. You name it—someone fears it. The special section in Tricycle’s latest issue features Buddhists who weigh in on living despite and amidst our anxieties. Dharma Punx guiding teacher Josh Korda describes how to meet terror with tenderness in “A Safe Container for Fear”; creative writing professor Daisy Hernández discusses her mother’s once undocumented status and the worry that kept her from writing about it earlier in “Learning to Speak the Truth”; and Buddhist nun Marcela Clavijo explains “What Green Tara Can Teach Us about Fear.” (Spoiler: She’ll show you how to recognize and overcome it.)

Buddhist films and discussion for the Tricycle Community



What are the costs of economic progress? Behemoth travels through Inner Mongolia to show the answer in unflinching detail: hillsides blasted for mining; the blistered hands and diseased lungs of the miners forced to do this work to survive. Following the trajectory of Dante’s Divine Comedy, the film reveals the stunning, and ruinous, effects of unbridled greed on a nation’s land and people.

Effortless Mindfulness

Effortless Mindfulness

Imagine if you could shift into a calm, relaxed awareness whenever you needed to. This is effortless mindfulness—a state that is always available to us, but is so close and so good that we often can’t see or accept it. In this deeply practical course led by Loch Kelly, we’ll learn how to find and sustain this awareness in order to unlock a natural happiness that has always been with us.
