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.

New Lazy Lama book – Loving Kindness


In this seventh booklet in the Lazy Lama series, Ringu Tulku looks at how we all need love and asks us to consider the benefits of generating loving kindness for each other. Rinpoche shares with us an Indian saying;

‘ When the trees support each other then we have houses and cities, when human beings support each other we have society, we have civilization.’

So, the whole of society, of civilization, survives by supporting and helping each other. But how can we, as imperfect human beings, offer even an ‘imperfect’ love, and is that enough? Yes, says Rinpoche, we can and should start from where we are. We can offer loving kindness, help and support for each other now, while aspiring towards an ideal unconditional love. Rinpoche encourages us, in these seemingly simple and concise teachings, to develop the courage of a hero dedicated to love, and to find our true brave heart.

It is available to pre-order now in the Book Shop.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s recordings on the Bardos

Dear Friends,

Over the coming months, we have the privilege of being able to share the voice recordings of four talks on Bardo given by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Hamburg in 2016.

Visit the blog here: www.livinganddyinginpeace.org

Bardo in Tibetan means in between, something hanging, in transition, on travel, changing situation.

Life is a bardo, death is a bardo, getting to the next life is a bardo.

By subscribing to the blog, you will automatically receive emails of new postings.

Now we start with the Bardo of Life.

Be happy, be joyful, go well,
