Buddha Weekly is an online magazine covering most important areas of Buddhist living and practice, with special focus on Teachers, Meditation Practices, Buddhas, Dharma and Sangha. Buddha Weekly Magazine has published on different platforms since 2007. We often profile specific Buddhist practices, teachers and Gurus, and insights into problems we personally may have faced in our practices.

Buddha Weekly online magazine’s focus is Buddhist living, practice and Dharma. Although written by senior student writers, we always cite the views of notable teachers of all traditions, schools and lineages. Our various writers also comment on Dharma and practices. Feature articles from contributors focus particularly on: Buddhist practices, Dharma, Vajrayana, Mahayana, Zen, mindfulness, Tantra, meditation techniques, mantra, and announcements of events, such as visiting gurus or teachers and their schedules. We occasionally profile teachers and gurus. Occasionally, we cover the latest Buddhist news from around the world from all traditions and non-traditions. Our editor is Lee Kane. You’ll also find us on Facebook>>

No Authority—We Are Practitioners, Not Teachers
Buddha Weekly‘s focus as an online magazine is to feature active practice from a student-practitioner point-of-view: encouraging, inspiring or discussing issues in practice—but written by practitioners. There is no authority to our stories, as our contributors are typically senior “students” and practitioners, not lineage-holders, teachers and gurus—unless a byline on a feature indicates it was written by a qualified teacher. We report, discuss and opine — and when presenting instructions, information or guidelines from teachers, we do so in “quotes” — but our stories are from the practitioner point-of-view.
Although most of our content is from our core team, we invite anyone to contribute feature stories, subject to approval and editing. Buddha Weekly is a service and generates no revenue. Its purpose is sharing. For this reason, contributors are not paid. We can provide you with a credit and link. We reserve the right to edit or not to publish stories.
Reader and subscriber comments are invited.
Moved From other platforms
Published since 2007, we were originally an active group Squarespace, and later on Ning, but to WordPress. Many of our older stories, sadly, were left behind.
Since our move, a regular group has contributed to our “zine.” Contributors submit their stories out of a love for their practice, compassion for all beings and a sincere delight in interacting with fellow Buddhists.
If you have an event to publicize that is Buddhist related, send it via our contact form and we will publicize it here, and through our Facebook and Twitter activities.
Do you have a story idea? Feedback? Want to say hello? Drop us a line.
If you’re interested in advertising, however, we are not a commercial enterprise, sorry. We will carry your Buddhist events, however. Please use our contact form.
