Caption Contest: Win a Free One-Year Membership to Tricycle!


To mark the release of the Winter 2012 edition of Tricycle, which hit newsstands yesterday, we're hosting a caption contest right here on the Tricycle blog! First prize winner gets a free one-year supporting membership on, the new issue of Tricycle mailed to their door, and a very special Rubin Museum Himalayan NYC guide, which offers exclusive discounts at Himalayan-affiliated restaurants, shops, yoga centers, and more in New York City. Runners-up will receive the Winter 2012 issue of Tricycle and a Himalayan NYC guide.

So, think you've got the Buddhist cleverness it takes to win? Please provide the wittiest caption you can for the photo below, which just so happened to be the cover of our Fall 2005 issue. You can enter your caption in the comments section until 2 PM tomorrow, November 8, when the contest officially closes.

If you have already shared your caption on our Facebook page, kindly do not re-post it here! We will be monitoring both in order to choose the winners.

Good luck!

As the monks meditated on the wisdom of "emptiness" their stomachs provided a little "emptiness" of their own !!

Must remain mindful...even when the robe becomes wet!

Somehow, I don't think this is the "letting go" that the Dharma speaks of.
