About The Daily Enlightenment

The Daily Enlightenment (TDE) is an independent free Buddhist newsletter that serves more than 29,000 members worldwide. It aims to inspire its readers to live mindfully and meaningfully, in the hope that they seek spiritual enlightenment on a daily basis. Members receive weekly e-newsletters with latest news of the Buddhist community, quotes, reflections, excerpts and recommended web links. All are welcomed to contribute articles.

Each year, TDE publishes a new ‘The Daily Enlightenment’ book with a year’s worth of 52 reflections, as featured in the newsletter – one for each week.

More exciting TDE publications beyond the annuals are underway too. ‘Sam & Sara’ is just the first!


(About TDE Logo: Like a Dharma wheel with radiating rays of the sun, the spokes of light represent the Noble Eightfold Path. Just as the sun shines each day, TDE hopes to offer ‘daily enlightenment’ to dispel the darkness of delusion.)

About Sam & Sara

Although ‘Sam & Sara’ covers universal and thus non-religious themes, its messages are nevertheless aligned to Buddhist principles. As a side project of the TDE team, TDE newsletters feature links to text episodes of ‘Sam & Sara’ at, another side project, which is a Buddhist blog of everyday Dharma. Proceeds from ‘Sam & Sara’ help to fund TDE’s services, just as TDE helps to support ‘Sam & Sara’ works.
