Do we really have nothing to fear but fear itself? In concert with the year’s spookiest month, Tricycle offers a helpful new e-book, Tricycle Teachings: Fear, which tackles this tricky emotion from a Buddhist perspective. The e-book’s contributors, from Tsoknyi Rinpoche to Ajahn Amaro, advise us on what to do when we feel fear, how we can overcome our aversion to it, and reveal how even the worst fear can be transformed into a source of constant renewal for our practice.
