Daily Dharma

Unlike a painting, our minds are not fixed. It is like the image is wiped clean and a new one is created every moment. While the next image will often be very similar to the previous one, it is never exactly the same.

– Khentrul Rinpoche, “A New Mind Each Moment”

Current Issue

Spring 2021

As the COVID-19 pandemic persists, the teachers and writers featured in Tricycle’s latest issue encourage readers to find joy where they can. Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara’s dharma talk, “Bodhisattvas Have More Fun,” emphasizes the delight that comes with helping others; scholar Seth Segall writes in “The Best Possible Life” about how modern Buddhism’s ancient Greek influences contribute to a nuanced view of human flourishing; and writer Daisy Hernández reflects on why mudita (delight in others’ happiness) matters now. Other stories include an examination of what video games can teach us about karma, written by the head writer for The Onion, Mike Gillis; an essay by Buddhist teacher Fred Eppsteiner about the time he spent with Thich Nhat Hanh in Paris in 1975; and a portfolio of Buryat artist Dashi Namdakov’s eerily fantastical sculptures.

Knowing How It Feels: Creatively Engaging with Habits

What's the secret to changing our habits for the better? The Buddha taught meditators to be mindful of "feeling tones." Now, the latest neuroscience is discovering that these sensations of pleasantness, unpleasantness, and neutrality play a pivotal role in conditioning our habitual reactions. Join Martine Batchelor in a new course exploring mindfulness of feeling tones and finding the freedom to creatively engage with our lives.
