    Art of Living with Venerable Metteyya at NY Insight Paid Member

    We just got back from an afternoon of filming Venerable Metteyya (of The Buddha documentary on PBS fame) at NY Insight and learned that he will be giving another talk there this Friday, July 13 from 7-9pm. He was speaking to Tricycle on the topic of addiction (you'll have to come back next month to see the talk) but this Friday he will be making a presentation on "The Art of Living."Read more about the event here.

  • 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 »
  • Tricycle Talk: Interview with Mark Elliott, Director of Bodhisattva Paid Member

    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. In this Tricycle Talk, Elliott was kind enough to exchange his usual position behind the camera for one in front of it.   Click here to watch Bodhisattva and buy an online film festival pass. More »

  • Buddha's Lost Children (And A Tough-Love Monk) Paid Member

    We have a new film at the Tricycle | Buddhafest Online Film Festival: Buddha's Lost Children, directed by Mark Verkerk. The Tricycle team watched it together yesterday afternoon, and let me tell you, this one's a good one. The film follows Thai boxer turned Buddhist monk Phra Khru Bah Neua Chai Kositto (Khru Bah, for short), as he takes young children from the fringes of Thai society into his monastery, saving them from a life of impoverishment or drug abuse. Focusing on three boys at the monastery, the film shows their transformation throughout a year under Khru Bah's care. More »
