Daily Dharma

Why is it that we yearn to be more or other than we are? It so rarely occurs to us that what we are looking for maybe—indeed, always is—already within us, simply undiscovered.

– Toinette Lippe, “Between Eternities”

Current Issue

Tricycle Magazine cover

The ongoing humanitarian crisis in Myanmar lies at the heart of Tricycle’s Spring 2018 issue. American imam Khalid Latif heads to the Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh; Southeast Asia–based journalist Joe Freeman provides five takes on Myanmar’s leader; and professor Johan Elverskog offers a historical perspective on the long and largely peaceful history of Buddhist and Muslim interaction. 

Plus, this issue includes powerful advice for meditation from the 10th-century Indian master Tilopa; an essay by Zen Buddhist priest Zenju Earthlyn Manuel on how those who have been displaced and discriminated against may begin to reclaim a sense of home; and author and translator C. W. Huntington, Jr.’s thoughts on whether we’re looking to Buddhism when we should be looking to therapy.

Read these pieces and more in our Spring 2018 issue.

Ta’ang

Ta’ang

Chinese filmmaker Wang Bing turns to the war-torn northeastern border of Myanmar in Ta’ang, a documentary that follows villagers of the Ta’ang ethnic minority as they flee to China, escaping an escalating civil war. In two refugee camps, some of the displaced attempt to create reasonably safe living conditions; others go deeper into China searching for work in sugarcane fields. Ta’ang captures the constant insecurity, instability, and disorientation that come with life as a refugee as well as the complexities—and emotional toll—of the choices Ta’ang families face.

From a Zen perspective, food is a source of nourishment as well as healing for the mind and body and can serve as a rich ground for spiritual practice. This spring in our new cooking course, we’ll be learning to make delicious Korean dishes that have been cooked in Buddhist monasteries for hundreds of years. Along the way, we’ll find out how the ancient art of Korean temple food can clean up our eating habits and quality of mind.
