10 commentsKudos and congratulations to the biggest little discussion group on the Tricycle Community: the Haiku Corner, mindfully minded by our great good friend Gary Gach. Very soon (if it hasn't already) the Haiku Corner's discussion will reach its 575th page (that's nearly 7,000 posts)! Gary tells me that 5-7-5 means something in haiku-speak—who knows. You can visit the Tricycle Community here. You can go directly to the Haiku Corner here, but you need to be a member of the Tricycle Community in order to do that—it's easy to join, and free! Or—contribute your own haiku right here! Thanks again, Gary, and all the crazy wisdom haiku poets contributing to this dialogue! We're very happy you're spinning your sibilant syllables with us!

14 commentsBefore somebody cries foul, let me be clear: you won’t find the Buddhist big-twitters on this list. Everybody knows the Dalai Lama is worth following (or at least, as of this moment, 560,521 tweeps think so). Instead, this list is meant to highlight five Buddhists on Twitter that you might not already know about. The people on this list are individuals who tweet primarily about Buddhism and have under 1,500 followers (sorry/congrats @MindDeep, you just missed the cutoff). Also, it should be noted that we consulted William Harryman’s list “Top 10 Buddhist Twitter peeps you should Follow” and purposely left those people off this list, because, well, you can just go look at that list.
