    Cartwheels in a Sari Paid Member

    Jayanti Tamm (a Tricycle alum) will be reading from and discussing her new memoir Cartwheels in a Sari at the Mercantile Exchange in New York City this Friday, April 17th, at 7 PM. The Mercantile Exchange is located at 17 East 47th Street between Fifth Avenue and Madison Avenue. Cartwheels in a Sari is the funny and amazing story of Jayanti's upbringing in the inner circle of Sri Chinmoy's ashram in Queens, New York, the painful struggle with her family, the guru, and the other disciples, that ensued when she left, and what it's like to start a new life afterward.

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 »
