From 1984 to 2015, Inquiring Mind has been a donation-supported, semiannual journal dedicated to the creative transmission of Buddhadharma to the West. After thirty-one years of service to the dharma, Inquiring Mind has now ceased publication. Our final issue is Spring 2015, “Blowing in the Wind.” Visit our Current page to find out more about this farewell edition.

Readers of Inquiring Mind have included followers of many different Buddhist traditions, and others interested in the philosophy and ideas of Buddhism. Born out of the Theravada Buddhist community of insight (vipassana) meditators, Inquiring Mind has been highly regarded for its excellent and thought-provoking interviews of Buddhist teachers such as Jack Kornfield, Joseph Goldstien and Joanna Macy, as well as for art, poetry, stories and humorous essays.
