The 20th anniversary issue of Tricycle is now online and heading to a newsstand near you! With this issue we’re celebrating 20 years of your support, which has allowed us to bring you the best Buddhist teachings and stories around!

Read “20 Years, 20 Stories” from the current issue to see what we mean. Here’s Lama Surya Das from a 2000 article:

We’re not born Buddhists, so there must be something that we’re receiving for which we are grateful. Following the dharma forms is a choice. You do not have to be here. Our devotion is born of gratitude for what we receive, not from our parents and local society. And if we have appreciation, gratitude, and devotion of some kind, then we soften up a little bit. Our hearts have been touched and we have more room, more patience for things we don’t understand.

—“Old Wine, New Bottles,” an interview with Lama Surya Das
