    Big Sit Day 43 Meditation Tip, plus Big Sit on Saipan Paid Member

    Big Sit Meditation Tip Day 43: Don’t expect too much. One of the good things about Buddhism is that it is very efficient at disappointing one’s egocentric calculations. And that’s a good thing. Other Big Sit news: There was a 45-minute Big Sit on the island of Saipan (on the north end of PauPau beach for those in the know) on Sunday, April 5th! Unfortunately Tricycle didn't see fit to send any correspondents... New York weather: 46 degrees Fahrenheit with steady rain. More »

    Tibetan Portrait Exhibit Paid Member

    This Sunday, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art in Staten Island, New York will open a new exhibit called Tibetan Portrait: The Power of Compassion. When we first got our hands on some of the photographs at the Tricycle offices, they seemed a perfect fit for our upcoming Summer 2009 issue, which will feature an article by Stephen Batchelor on the Tibetan Diaspora (2009 is the fiftieth anniversary of the 1959 Chinese invasion of Tibet). Although it looks like we'll be including different art for the article (and some AP archival photography!), this exhibit is not to be missed. More »

    Beastie Boys film Paid Member

    Oscilloscope Laboratories, the film distribution company started by Beastie Boy and Buddhist Adam Yauch, will be releasing the Buddhist documentary Unmistaken Child on June 12th at the Film Forum in New York City. From Oscilloscope: The Buddhist concept of reincarnation, while both mysterious and enchanting, is hard for most Westerners to grasp. UNMISTAKEN CHILD follows the 4-year-search for the reincarnation of Lama Konchog, a world-renowned Tibetan master who passed away in 2001 at age 84. The Dalai Lama charges the deceased monk's devoted disciple, Tenzin Zopa (who had been in his service since the age of seven), to search for his master's reincarnation, a child who may be anywhere in the world. Tenzin sets off on foot, mule and even helicopter, through breathtaking landscapes and remote traditional Tibetan villages. More »
