Current Issue

Winter 2021

Tricycle’s latest issue looks to the past and the future, examining what we can learn from past actions to enact future change. In “When America Met Thich Nhat Hanh,” peace activist Jim Forest reflects on his experiences with the Zen master’s engaged Buddhist action. In “How to Bring Our Planet Back to Life,” environmentalist Paul Hawken argues that to save our planet, we need to create a world worth saving. Other features include an interview with playwright Sarah Ruhl about how Buddhist teachings helped her cope with Bell’s palsy and the COVID-19 pandemic; a portfolio featuring the multimedia works of artist Chitra Ganesh; and a look at how Buddhists have addressed—or ignored—the adverse effects of meditation, a.k.a. “Buddhism’s Biggest Open Secret.”
