  • Treasury of Lives: Lotsawa Loden Sherab and Lotsawa Zhonnu Pel Paid Member

    Biography and autobiography in Tibet are important sources for both education and inspiration. Tibetans have kept such meticulous records of their teachers that thousands of names are known and discussed in a wide range of biographical material. All these names, all these lives—it can be a little overwhelming. The authors involved in the Treasury of Lives are currently mining the primary sources to provide English-language biographies of every known religious teacher from Tibet and the Himalaya, all of which are organized for easy searching and browsing. Every Tuesday on the Tricycle blog, we will highlight and reflect on important, interesting, eccentric, surprising and beautiful stories found within this rich literary tradition.

    Gene Smith - An Icon & Legend Paid Member

    We were very sad to learn this morning that our dear friend Gene Smith passed away yesterday.  Beyond simply being a wonderful man with a kind presence, Gene Smith is truly one of great modern heroes of the Buddhist world. He will be greatly missed.  Long before working for Tricycle, I had the tremendous privilege of getting to know Gene and his staff at the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center (TBRC) while I was working for his longtime friend and colleague Jeff Watt, the director of Himalayan Art Resources (HAR). TBRC and HAR share an office here in Manhattan and it was an honor to have shared a space with Gene, to have joked around with him, and to have benefited from his tremendous insight, dedication, and warmth. Pema Choephel, who also worked alongside Gene, writes: More »
