Daily Dharma

Until we get rid of that “I,” that “self” who desires and dislikes, we will keep experiencing the up-and-down states of the wheel of change.

Current Issue

Spring 2020

Tricycle’s Spring 2020 issue connects timeless Buddhist teachings with our contemporary world. In “How to Read the Lotus Sutra,” Tricycle’s Editor and Publisher James Shaheen interviews scholars Jacqueline Stone and Donald S. Lopez Jr. to get a better understanding of this fundamental Mahayana Buddhist text; writer Sallie Tisdale struggles with the ethics of euthanizing her aging dog; and African American professor of Buddhism Jan Willis examines race and class in American sanghas. Also in the issue, a profile of the musician Devendra Banhart sheds light on his Buddhist practice, Dan Zigmond reviews Jenny Odell’s instant classic How to Do Nothing: Resisting the Attention Economy, and Wendy Joan Biddlecombe Agsar revisits the ongoing controversy of mindfulness instruction given in public schools.

Living the Lotus Sutra

Myokei Caine-Barrett

Nichiren Shonin taught that the essence of the Lotus Sutra is found by developing faith through chanting what’s called the daimoku (or the odaimoku), the sutra’s sacred title. Myokei Caine-Barrett, the first woman and the first Westerner to hold the position of bishop in the Nichiren Order of North America, leads us through daimoku practice.
