Daily Dharma

When we understand that karma is based on volition, we can see the enormous responsibility we have to become conscious of the intentions that precede our actions.

– Joseph Goldstein, “Cause and Effect”

Daily wisdom, teachings & critique

Current Issue

Summer 2020

Made at the onset of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, Tricycle’s Summer 2020 issue contains teachings and essays that offer guidance on dealing with uncertainty and navigating an interconnected world. Sharon Salzberg teaches how the key to resilience lies in remembering that we are never alone in her dharma talk “Forever Connected”; writer Curtis White, in “Our World in the Wheel of Life,” critiques modern society by imagining a contemporary version of the Tibetan Wheel of Life; and former Zen monastic Vanessa Zuisei Goddard contemplates what makes a space sacred in “The Places We Go to Be Here.”
