Current Issue

Tricycle Magazine cover

In the Summer 2018 issue, Buddhist teachers and writers explain how cultivating bodhicitta—the deep wish to awaken for the sake of all beings—can help us live generously and with grace. This issue also includes the voices of Buddhist women weighing in on the #MeToo movement, including Tibetan Buddhist teacher Lama Tsultrim Allione’s “Nasty Woman Meditation” practice, which can help us tap into the feminine power we all possess.

Plus, learn how mindfulness practice supports conscious decision-making, and be inspired by bilateral above-the-knee amputee Hari Budha Magar, who lost his legs to a wartime bomb but still plans to summit Mount Everest next spring.

In our latest course, we'll explore a variety of insights and practices—drawn from early Buddhism and contemporary psychology—that can help us acknowledge and process emotional experiences that destabilize us—and discover how to thrive in a disconnected world.

Buddhist Teachings for Fools and Losers

Mauricio Hondaku

When we fail, it’s easy to feel bad about ourselves—after all, we live in a society that judges us for our material successes. But the most prominent Buddhist masters were people who failed badly: the Buddha failed in his ascetic practices; Shinran Shonin, founder of the Jodo Shinshu school of Buddhism, was exiled and defrocked early in his career. In this series, Jodo Shinshu Reverend Mauricio Hondaku will explain what Shakyamuni and Shinran’s failures can teach us about shedding social pressures, abandoning our masks, and ultimately finding peace with our imperfections.

The Apology

The Apology

During World War II, more than 200,000 young women in Korea, China, the Philippines, and Indonesia were kidnapped and coerced into sexual slavery by the Imperial Japanese Army. Some 70 years later, three “grandmothers” summon the courage to tell their stories despite decades of silence and shame.
