Buddha Weekly Online Magazine, published since 2007, takes a topical approach to modern Buddhist feature writing — topics of interest to modern Buddhists, from the multiple points-of-view of many teachers of different traditions.

The Dalai Lama has written publicly that he is not certain the tradition of the Dalai Lama will continue.

WHAT THE BUDDHIST TEACHERS SAY

Our writers and editors are senior students who seek out, or research, the opinions of teachers on important Dharma issues, such as: the implications of non-human animal sentience; or palliative care and assisted dying as we all grow older; alternative healing; practice overload in busy, modern lives; internet Dharma.

The complex visualizations required in Vajrayana meditative methods, which can include holding detailed images for long periods of time, dramatically and immediately improve cognitive ability according to research from NUS.

THE SCIENTIFIC BUDDHIST

Most of our contributors are interested in how science compliments and reinforces Buddhist concepts. We take Dharma topics, often the Buddha's own words, and look how modern science might support ancient truths. We cite research and quote scientists and Buddhist teachers. Past topics have included: meditation for healing, the evidence for rebirth, how to understand emptiness, and why "compassion" should be put on the scientific map.

INTERVIEWS WITH THE TEACHERS

Our newest special series is "Interviews with the Buddhist Teachers". We interview, in person, a well-known teacher. These extensive interviews cover wide-ranging topics — such as Karma, Rebirth, Dharma, Buddhist Deities, Meditation, Healing and more — and are a great way to gain diverse teacher-led insight into important Dharma topics and practices.

Venerable Zasep Tulku Rinpoche is spiritual head of several Mahayana Buddhist centres in North America and Australia

ADVICE FROM THE TEACHERS

Buddha Weekly's new "Advice from the Teachers" videos take student questions to teachers for a short 5 minute video-recorded answer. In our first series of ten, teachers respond to questions about Karma, healing for chronic illness, losing a loved one, loss of a beloved pet, keeping motivated in your practice, dealing with memory loss, how to purify negative karma, and other important topics.
