  • The Future of Religion Paid Member

    You might have seen it mentioned in last Friday's Buddha Buzz that there's a new interview between Stephen Batchelor and Don Cupitt over at the Secular Buddhist Association website called "The Future of Religion: A Dialogue." Tricycle printed its own dialogue between America's #1 Buddhist Atheist (that's Stephen) and Anglican priest Don Cupitt back in 2003 that you can read here. This new conversation between the two, which originally occurred in London in May, is extremely interesting but rather a lot to wade through. Here's a small excerpt—if it piques your interest, make sure to head on over to the Secular Buddhist Association website to read the conversation in its entirety. More »

  • Buddha Buzz: All the Usual Characters Plus a Pack of Monkeys Paid Member

    The great Buddhist leaders of the world have been busy lately. On Saturday, Aung San Suu Kyi made her way to Oslo, where she accepted the Nobel Peace Prize awarded to her in 1991. (At the time, her sons accepted it on her behalf, as she was under house arrest by the Burmese military junta.) Her triumphant five-country European tour, still ongoing, is the first time she has left Burma in almost a quarter of a century. You can watch her moving acceptance speech here.  More »

    The Tricycle | Buddhafest Online Film Festival is still going strong. Our new film this week, which started Monday, is Mark Elliott's Bodhisattva—The Journey of the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa. The film documents Ogyen Trinley Dorje, one of the two claimants to the title of the 17th Karmapa, as he visits the United States for the first time.
