Daily Dharma

How, then, to put our minds in a space where practice is always there, whether tumultuous or in the doldrums? It requires a completely radical view of practice: practice is not something we do; it is something we are.

– Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, “Like a Dragon in Water”

Current Issue

Winter 2018

With this issue Tricycle introduces a comprehensive new design. Beyond the new look, readers will find front sections that foster dialogue within the Tricycle community, let you in on what’s happening right now in the Buddhist world, and provide practical teachings for day-to-day life.

In “The Human Deity,” our cover story, contributing editor Kurt Spellmeyer takes on different schools’ representations of the Buddha: was he human or divine? Journalist Judith Hertog investigates why a rapidly growing Buddhist community insists that it alone teaches the one, pure dharma, and our editors look at the sometimes-shaky science behind mindfulness and meditation studies.

We also share lesser-known Buddhist practices for personal and collective harmony in our special section “Meditations Off the Beaten Path,” including a daily practice to foster gratitude and a visualization for interconnection.

Buddhist Shorts Film Festival 2019

This month at Tricycle, we’re featuring five short films from around the world that you won’t find anywhere else. Among the cinematic journeys in store, we’ll trail a group of Chinese Buddhist nuns on pilgrimage in the Canadian Rockies, watch people try out virtual reality for the first time, and reflect on the difficulty of living in the present moment with Little Vaysha, a young girl with a double-edged gift.
