Daily Dharma

Just as smoke from a chimney disperses into the air, we should disperse our sense of “group” or “family” and truly participate in the life around us.

– Master Sheng-Yen, “As Spacious as Nature”

Daily wisdom, teachings & critique

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.

The Buddha Didn’t Teach Consent

The Essence of Awakening

Why do we suffer? And how can we restructure our worldview in a way that aligns with the way things really are and leads to less dissatisfaction? Investigate these questions with John Dunne, who will lead us in deconstructing what we “know” to be true and learning how to cultivate the wisdom of selflessness, emptiness, and compassion.
