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!

Bodhicharya Summercamp 31st July – 6th August 2017 Casa da Torre, Vila Verde, Northern Portugal

Using the deity as meditation practice, in particular White Tara, was the topic for this years summercamp held for the 6th time in northern Portugal. The venue was once again Casa da Torre near Vila Verde, and the delightful Portugese sangha were as welcoming as ever. It is always lovely to meet so many now familiar faces after twelve years of Bodhicharya Summercamp retreats here and in France since 2006. The warm weather and fresh vegetarian food laid the ground for a spiritually nourishing week with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Rinpoche told us that White Tara was the first sadhana taught by the Buddha: in India, where White Tara was already a common practice, she was known as Saraswati and associated with healing and long life. The great yogi-saint, Atisha Dipankara, felt he was guided by White Tara and believed himself to have been saved by her, and when he was invited to re-introduce Buddhism to Tibet from India, he brought this practice with him. Gampopa later inherited the practice and passed on the sadhana to the first Karmapa, Dusom Khyenpa. Since then White Tara has been regarded as an important bodhisattva in the Tibetan school of Vajrayana Buddhism and this particular sadhana has been recited throughout the entire Karmapa lineage until today.
