Buddha Buzz: On Hiatus for Bonnaroo 2013

Buddha Buzz is on hiatus this week while Tricycle's daring and irreplaceable editorial assistant Alex Caring-Lobel travels to Manchester, Tennesee, for Bonnaroo 2013. Please come back in one piece, Alex.


There he is!

In the meantime, here's what's going on in the Buddhist world (and beyond) this week:

- The 50th anniversary of Vietnamese monk Thich Quang Duc's self-immolation

- HHDL asks Tibetans to stop fighting over prized caterpillar fungus, valued in China for its purported medicinal effects, including boosting libido

- The Muslim man accused of sparking sectarian violence in Burma last month is jailed for 26 years

- Burmese government expresses support for a two-child limit on the Rohingya Muslim population

- Burmese monks call to restrict Buddhist-Muslim marriages

- Buddhist-Muslim tensions rise in Sri Lanka

- Pop neuroscience (including those "cool" studies performed on Buddhist monks) is bunk!

Have a wonderful weekend, everybody.

"If biology has taught us anything, it is that “my brain” versus “me” is a false distinction." AKA dualism, in Buddhism.
