Running Tide is the periodical of the Amida Order carrying articles on Pureland Buddhism. The most recent issues (33 and 34) give a comparison between Pureland buddhism and the Twelve Step Programme for overcoming addiction, highlighting similarities and differences.
Running Tide offers a voice for faith and practice, as well as critical, existential and socially engaged enquiry within the broad framework of Pureland Buddhism. We publish short articles, poetry, pictures, interviews, comment and Buddhist resource materials. Opinions expressed are those of the contributors and do not necessarily reflect the position of the Amida Order, Amida Trust, or other associated organisations.
Running Tide is distributed by:
Amida Trust, Amida Mandala Buddhist Temple, 34 Worcester Road, Malvern WR14 4AA UK
