Dear friends,

Wishing you all a very happy and auspicious Saga Dawa Düchen!

As many of you may have seen or heard, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has arrived in Europe and has commenced his 2018 Teaching Tour. Rinpoche started at the Dharma-Tor Centre, Huttenried, Germany and then spent last week teaching in Bodhicharya Berlin and a number of other centres in Berlin. He is now in Bodhicharya Brussels.

You can find out about all the places Rinpoche will visit on his Teaching Schedule page.

Since 2015, Rinpoche has been making audio recordings of most of his talks and teachings. These recordings are now automatically uploaded to the Archive and we are able to share these recordings to members of The Ringu Tulku Archive almost as soon as they arrive. This means that members can listen to these recordings as he travels around the globe.

The Archive now also contains over 250 teachings from the past 14 years. Currently we are working on the last upload which will bring us back to 1989!

Radiance of the Heart

 

To bring you some warmth this wintertime, Bodhicharya Publications is very happy to announce the publication of a new Heart Wisdom book.

Radiance of the Heart presents Ringu Tulku’s teachings on Kindness, Compassion and Bodhicitta. Following on from the publication last year of the Lazy Lama booklet Lazy Lama looks at Loving-Kindness, this text develops this core topic further. Drawing on five teaching sources, the text first encourages us with a practical look at how to bring kindness and compassion into our daily lives. Ringu Tulku discusses themes of meditation and the practice of tonglen; and answers a wide range of questions.

The text then looks towards kindness and compassion from a more ultimate perspective: Ultimate Bodhicitta, the heart essence of enlightenment. Embodying such understanding brings an ever purer expression of kindness and compassion, imbued with deepening wisdom. Thus, the text aims to present a wide-ranging, but pithy, contemplation of this subject, central to the hearts and lives of us all.

Copies will be available in February and you can pre-order your copy from Bodhicharya Publications here in the Book Shop.

Launching The Ringu Tulku Archive

Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of The Ringu Tulku Archive.

This website will become a repository for all of the teachings given by Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche that have been recorded since January 1990 when, at the invitation of students and friends, he first began to travel in the West. He has given countless teachings during that time, on all levels and on all kinds of topics, according to whatever is requested and whoever is listening. The range of topics is immense and varied, interesting for newcomers to Dharma as well as long term students. Rinpoche’s command of the English language means the teachings are given and received with incredible ease – as if, he often says, “I’m chatting with friends while on my holidays”. Even repeated requests for the same topic are responded to with a wonderful freshness and delivered as if for the first time. He has said that what we are receiving through these Dharma teachings is very, very rare and there are actually very few places in the world, even in Tibet, that this level of instruction is given.

What an extraordinary opportunity.
