Rinpoche’s birthday falls on the week of Bodhicharya Summer Camp which will be held in Portugal July 14-20. We would like to ask all of you to send Rinpoche a happy birthday greeting card, whether you are coming to summer camp or not. Either bring your card with you, along with the cards of your friends and sangha members who are not able to come this time, or send it via snail mail (yes, through post office, with a stamp on!) to:
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche
C/o Tsering Paldron
Casa da Torre
4730 570 SOUTELO
Please send your birthday card soon, so that it will arrive by July 16th!
PS. It could be a postcard from your own country – maybe with some landmark, with a personal message? Then there is no need to even use an envelope. Of course, you can also make your own card if you like.
Tomorrow 13/6/14 on the auspicious day of Fullmoon of Saga Dawa my uncle Thendup Dorjee’s stupa will be consecrated by the Tulkus, Khenpos and monks of Rigul Monastery. It was built under the dedicated leadership of Dr. Chuga.
I thank all who helped and contributed towards this project.

+++ Tickets sales start Thursday, 8 May, 6 p.m. CEST +++
500 more tickets per event are available for the Karmapa’s visit to Berlin – we have moved to a larger hall at the same venue, the Estrel Convention Center. All tickets sold so far, as well as their categories, keep their validity.
As many of you may already know, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje, will visit Germany from 28th May until 8th June. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche, being the official Representative of His Holiness the 17th Karmapa for Europe, is the main coordinator of the visit. Therefore Rinpoche will be visiting fewer locations than he normally would this spring (See the travel schedule here).
We hope that many of you will consider attending some of these wonderful events based in Kamalashila and Berlin. To view the Provisional Schedule in various languages, see www.karmapafoundation.eu website. For more information on ticketing and locations, visit www.karmapa-germany.de.
Please also consider supporting the events if you can.

At the Bodhicharya Meditation Centre
Near Rumtek in Sikkim
1st – 15th March 2013
Medicine Buddha (the Buddha of Outer and Inner Healing) is the theme of this Vajrayana retreat: the manifestation of the healing energies of all enlightened beings.
There will be places for 16 people only, each in single room with meditation box! A unique opportunity for a 14-day retreat with Ringu Tulku and for really understanding the Medicine Buddha practice.
We are once again hugely privileged that Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has invited us for a retreat at his beautiful Bodhicharya Meditation Centre in Sikkim – and to be present as our Retreat Master. He will be supported by Lama Tsering Paljor and Ani Wangmo as in the past two retreats (Vajrasattva 2010, Guru Rinpoche 2011/12).
Please contact Erika for more information on the retreat. Emaho!
