Earthquake in Northern India

 There was a 6.8 earthquake in Sikkim, Nepal and North India which lasted for over 40 seconds the epicentre of which was in Sikkim. The roads to Sikkim are badly damaged. 18 people are so far reported dead and many with injuries. Gangtok is relatively safe and none of my family and friends are affected so far. There were 3 more shocks and people lived outside all night. The extent of damage to life and buildings is not yet known as roads and mobile communication are broken to remote places.
I was going to Gangtok today from Delhi but going to Nepal till roads are open again.
We are all well.

A Special Birthday Message from Rinpoche

Your loving messages on my birthday
Moved me and encouraged me.

Although a host of great masters taught me
And showered their blessings on me
I remained an idiot just because of my laziness.

If I can bring a slight smell of genuine dharma
In the mind stream of a single individual
I will feel that the efforts of those great teachers
Have not been completely wasted.

Your interest and appreciation of Dharma
Is my strength to live and work in this world.

A Message from Rinpoche

Dear Friends,

Thank you so very much for the good wishes I have received from all of you. I am impressed and feel grateful for the good wishes that you all have sent me. I spent the day with my family listening to the rhythmic music of the rain on my roof and watching the monsoon clouds shedding off their last burden and disappear in to space.

Love and prayers

Feeling better.

Dear Friends,

I was a little sick on 8th March due to high blood pressure on my way to Varanasi to see and translate for HH the Karmapa. I am now going through all the check ups at the Medica North Bengal Clinic, Siliguri. I am already feeling better and my b.p. is under control. Hopefully I will be discharged tomorrow.

I am confident that I can continue my Spring Tour. There is nothing to worry about.

Looking forward to see many of you in Europe.

Best wishes,

Burying Peace Vase in Oxford


The peace vase made and blessed by His Holiness Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche was buried in the compound of Oxford Union on 30th April. The vase was buried by The Very Revd. Robert A Wilkes, representative of the Archbishop of Canterbury,  Laura Winwood, President, Oxford Union and Ven. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, representative of HH the Karmapa.

His Holiness Karmapa’s trip to Europe cancelled.

Dear Dharma Friends,

I am sad to announce that the proposed visit of His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje was not approved by the Government of India. The visit was scheduled to take place from 27th May to 2nd July in nine countries of Europe.

The Kagyu Office, the Administration of Gyalwang Karmapa was informed of the decision by the Tibetan Government in Exile on 3rd April 2010. The process has begun to find out why this visit was not possible and what positive conditions are needed to make the visit possible in near future.

I know a huge number of followers and friends in Europe were eagerly waiting for the visit of Gyalwang Karmapa and I know that all of you are sad and disappointed.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the organizers, volunteers and donors for working so hard to prepare for the visit in last many months. Your cooperation and support were beyond any expectations.

I hope and pray together with you that the visit will happen in very near future and that all of us would be able to receive his teachings in Europe.

Ringu Tulku,
Coordinator,
Karmapa’s Visit to Europe
