Rinpoche has kindly accepted Bodhicharya Berlin’s request to give a teaching on the two basic meditation practices, Shine (Shamatha) and Lhaktong (Vipassana).
Shine meditation is focused on quieting the mind, to train in calm abiding, open awareness and not following your thoughts and impulses. Lhaktong meditation is aimed at insight, seeing things clearly as they are.
We are very much looking forward to Rinpoche’s explanations and advice to help with our daily practice.
We just wanted to make you aware that Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is now taking part in live webinars every other Sunday as part of the Bodhicharyavatara Course in the Ringu Tulku Archive. During these question and answer sessions students can ask Rinpoche questions live on Zoom.

We have sadly taken the decision to close the online bookshop until the situation with Corvid-19 improves. There are increasing restrictions in the UK and the advice is to try and minimise all social contact. Sending books involves social contact as they are sent through the post.
We will close the shop after Sunday 22nd March, so if you want to buy some books to get you through the next few difficult months please place your order now and they will be sent next week.
We are still able to supply bulk orders to centres as a courier is used for these – please contact email@example.com for information.

This means that members can listen to these recordings as he travels around the globe.
The Online Archive currently contains over 460 teachings from the past 30 years and we are now in the final stages of publishing all remaining recordings from the original archive in Berlin.
