Today is the 29th birthday of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje. Let us all pray for the long life, good health and accomplishment of all his Buddha activities. May all the obstacles and hindrances for his life and activities be eliminated like the light dispels the darkness. May we all be able to contribute effectively in performing his enlightened activities to benefit all the beings and greater well being to this world.

Lazy Lama Film

Renowned German filmmaker Niko von Glasow’s newest film is now available online!


Click on the image above to go watch the film.
The film shows Ringu Tulku not only as a Buddhist master and teacher – it also offers a personal, humorous and honest insight into his family and working life. It shows Ringu Tulku preparing four students for a retreat which lasts three years, three months and three days, in Sikkim, North India. Spending time with the Lazy Lama gives the audience the opportunity to reflect on their own lives, and find ways to create more room for spirituality, meditation, empathy and the right kind of “laziness”.

See Palladio Films for more information.

Sherab Palden Beru Passes Away

Uncle Sherab

 
I used to sit at his side and ask for stories.
When I was barely ten years old.
While painting Thankas of many colours
He told me folk tales of Tibet
The epics of Ling Gesar
And life stories of great masters
So colourful and inspiring
Not even slightly distracted from his work.
I have forgotten the big books
That I struggled to study and memorise
But those stories are still fresh in my mind
Giving guidance at every turn of my life.
He was a great artist.
A master in the creation of spiritual symbolism.
He continued to paint Thankas
Until he could no longer see.
He was a great friend to me,
With his kindness and concern;
He helped me to see my pitfalls
Even without mentioning them.
Today he left his body
At the ripe old age of a hundred and one
To continue his work of art
For the benefit of another set of beings.
I know he will be well wherever he goes,
But I will miss him till to my last breath.

By Ringu Tulku


These words spontaneously arose in my mind when I heard the news that my life long friend Sherab Palden Beru passed away in Samye Ling, Scotland on 29th November, 2012.
