Bodhicharya Publications is very happy to announce the publication of Ringu Tulku’s latest book ‘White Tara: Healing Light of Wisdom.’ This book presents his teachings on the practice of White Tara, focusing on the short daily sadhana by Tenga Rinpoche and explaining how it includes all aspects of practice: shamatha, vipassana, Mahamudra and so on.
Purchasing a copy of this beautiful text will not only bring you these timeless teachings, but will also donate funds to Rigul Trust, to support their activities among the people of Ringu Tulku’s homeland in Rigul, Kham. 100% of all profits received go directly to Rigul Trust.

A letter from Ringu Tulku Rinpoche about Rigul, his birthplace, and where he has his monastery:
“I am very pleased to report that the school, clinic and shedra are going very well in Rigul. I would like to thank you all for your very generous contributions.
To secure the well being for the people of Rigul in the longer term, a plan has been created with the help of a professionally managed investment fund. This investment fund has enabled us to better utilise the accumulated reserves whilst still maintaining our current day to day funding of Rigul. The aim of this fund is to grow it sufficiently over the next ten years so that it will provide a legacy which will support the people of Rigul into the future. We would also like to remind you that 100% of all donations received from you go towards benefiting the people of Rigul since the Trust is operated on a volunteer basis.
Our task has not yet been completed. With your help, the people of Rigul will be able to continue to have health care services and free education and food for children as well indefinitely into the future.
I send you my heart felt gratitude for all the help and support that you are giving to the people of the village of my monastery”
We are happy to announce that Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach at Summer Camp 2022, live in Casa da Torre, Portugal. Sessions will also be broadcasted, making it possible to attend either at the venue or via Zoom. The topic is yet to be decided.
For more information, and to register your interest in attending either live or online, please visit:
May you live long and in good health.
May your wishes for yourself and others be effortlessly realised.
Love, kindness, harmony and happiness may prevail.
And the whole world be filled with auspiciousness.
This prayer is sent by Ringu Tulku,
on the Water Tiger Tibetan New Year.
The Bodhicharya Publications team are very happy to announce the publication of a new book in Rinpoche’s ‘Lazy Lama series’ about ‘The Six Paramitas‘.
At 268 pages, this is by far the largest Lazy Lama book to date, lovingly transcribed and edited by Karma Trinley Paldron with illustrations by Karma Orgyen Namdreul. The text was compiled from teachings given in 2015 at Gaunts House, Dorset UK, and in 2016 at Karma Dzong, Paris.
The Six Paramitas, or “transcendent perfections,” contain all the skills needed for taming the mind and opening the heart. Rinpoche reveals the Six Paramitas as bodhicitta in action, rather than an unattainable state of perfection. Through his wisdom and great compassion, warm humour and unfailing patience, Rinpoche shows us how these profound teachings are essential to our lives, especially in these times of stress and great uncertainty.
“I think everything that we need to improve our world, our society and our humanity is in the Six Paramitas. These practices can make our lives good temporarily, as well as bringing lasting peace and happiness.
This is an approach based on compassion, on wishing to help not only myself, but all of us together. The attitude is not “I and you,” but “me and we.” Someone who has the courage or heart for this approach is called a Bodhisattva; and this awakening is not only of yourself, but of everybody.”
Dealing with the different stages of this life and beyond, into the next, is a precious skill for a Buddhist practitioner. If we can use life and death as opportunities for transformation and spiritual growth, we can make the most of this human life.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach on this most essential topic for five days, from 23rd to the 27th of July. There will be live simultaneous translations into French, Portuguese, German, Italian, and Spanish.
Like last year, due to the Corona virus outbreak, this year’s Bodhicharya Summer Camp will still be happening via Zoom. Rinpoche has kindly agreed to teach online for five days. There will be a session a day, with time for questions and answers too.
Like every year, the online Summer Camp will be accessible to everyone, even to those who do not have a deep knowledge of the Buddhist path and did not attend previous years’ sessions.

A Buddhist perspective on the ‘Gospel of Mary Magdalene’.
Thursday 22nd July at 3:30pm BST (UK)
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche offers his reflections on this long lost little known Christian text, along with a Q&A session after. This session will explore the common themes that link this more mystical, feminine version of Christianity and Buddhist teachings. Themes like interdependence, craving and attachment.
Bodhicharya Publications would like to wish everyone very best wishes for the Iron Ox Year we have entered. We hope you have been enjoying the wealth of online teachings and recordings offered by the Archive.
We just want to let you know that the Buddhist Society London is starting a free 10 lesson online course on Thursday 18th February.
Each lesson will explore a chapter of Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will analyse the Bodhicharyavatara, often translated as A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, an 8th-century masterpiece from Indian scholar and yogi Shantideva. In each of the ten lessons, H.E. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will focus on one of the ten chapters of the Bodhicharyavatara.
The Bodhicharyavatara is regarded as one of the most important Tibetan Buddhist texts and is studied extensively by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners everywhere. Rinpoche delivers his understanding of the text in a way that makes it fully accessible to anyone who is looking for support and help in these times.
