Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s recordings on the Bardos

Dear Friends,

Over the coming months, we have the privilege of being able to share the voice recordings of four talks on Bardo given by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Hamburg in 2016.

Visit the blog here: www.livinganddyinginpeace.org

Bardo in Tibetan means in between, something hanging, in transition, on travel, changing situation.

Life is a bardo, death is a bardo, getting to the next life is a bardo.

By subscribing to the blog, you will automatically receive emails of new postings.

Now we start with the Bardo of Life.

Be happy, be joyful, go well,

Summer Camp 2017 with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is now open for registration

Location: Casa da Torre – Centro de Retiros | Soutelo – Vila Verde – Braga
Start: 31/07/2017 | End: 06/08/2017

The 2017 Bodhicharya Summer Camp will again be held in Portugal. The chosen place is a Christian retreat house, in the North of Portugal. The facilities are excellent, with single and double rooms with twin beds. Vegetables and fruit are grown by the community itself and taste absolutely delicious. There is a river, at a short walking distance away, where one can swim or just refresh oneself. There is a fluvial beach and a small terrace, perfect to sit, relax and enjoy a drink. Participants may also relax and enjoy the activities available around the centre.

The teaching subject for the summer camp is yet to be confirmed. Please refer to the Summer Camp webpage for more updates.

Dear Friends,

This year Rinpoche has been making audio recordings of most of the teachings he has given while travelling around Europe and beyond. We are now planning to present these on the Bodhicharya website here.

We will be posting these daily over the next week or so while we catch up to where he is now. Then we will add the new recordings here as and when they come in.

We hope that you will find these teachings very helpful and inspiring.

Bodhicharya Berlin Stupa Project

Picture of Berlin stupa

3D-view by Joe Burke, U.K

“The Stupa is a monument representing peace, harmony, and love. It symbolises the essence of the five elements and the qualities of the awakened mind with its unlimited compassion and most profound wisdom. It contains numerous texts of buddhist teachings and prayers, and it is built to help maintain world peace. The stupa on the grounds of the Bodhicharya Centre for Peace and Understanding in Berlin promotes outer balance, inner peace, and all encompassing love.”

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Evidently Berlin, a world city of cultures and the capital of Germany, is slowly changing into a spiritual place. Many religious traditions are represented here, as well as all Buddhist traditions from Asia. Berlin is a city where many memorials and monuments call to mind the victims of World War I and II and the genocide of the Jewish population in Europe. A traditional Tibetan-Buddhist Stupa will strongly influence the development of Peace and Harmony between people, as well as in the environment. Continue reading
