    We were recently asked permission to have a Tricycle article translated and published in Spanish. Here's what it looks like. It's Tai Situpa Rinpoche's "It Takes a Saint," and it appears in the most recent edition of Cuadernos de budismo, a quarterly magazine based in Spain. We are especially fond of the young man meditating in a suit. Read the piece in English here. More »
  • What will it take to establish a truly Western Dharma? Paid Member

    In Tricycle’s most recent issue there is a piece titled “It Takes a Saint.” In this piece, Tai Situpa Rinpoche shares his beliefs on what it will take for Buddhism to become truly established in the West.  He writes, "I’ll make it simple: One Western person must attain full enlightenment in the same way as Marpa, Milarepa, or Padmasambhava. If one Westerner—man or woman, doesn’t matter—attains that level of realization, then pure dharma will be established in Western culture, Western language, and environment, and so forth. Until that time, dharma can be taught in the West, which is already happening; it can be practiced in the West, which is already happening; and it can be recited in Western languages. But it’s not yet one hundred percent complete." Read the whole piece here. More »
