Invitation to a 14 day Retreat with Ringu Tulku

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!

Seats for the Winter Retreat in Berlin still available

About 20 seats are still available for the very first Bodhicharya Winter Retreat in Berlin with Ringu Tulku from January 3rd to 7th 2013.



This intensive retreat, that we hope to make an annual event, is organised as a fundraiser for the building of the new temple in Bodhicharya Berlin.

You can find further information about the retreat and the registration procedure here.




Please join us if you can!

A Travel Journal – Why Not

For all of those not currently on Summer Camp in Portugal, here is an online copy of the 60th birthday book given to Rinpoche. To view it at a larger size, just click on the icon with four arrows next to the Blurb logo.

Sometime, in the near future, we hope to put a student version together with more photos of Rinpoche and more text about the history of Bodhicharya. This will hopefully be a smaller, more affordable book than this large luxurious version! However, Rinpoche’s version of the book is for sale for those with deep pockets! Just click on the shopping cart icon above to purchase.

Rinpoche’s new Travel Schedule now online

Dear Friends,

The planning for the first half of Ringu Tulku’s Summer Travels have just been completed and the organisers are busy working on the details for their centres. As you can see on the Bodhicharya Travel Schedule, Rinpoche will visit Huttenreid in Germany, Ireland, England and Scotland between 25th May and 1st July ’12. His tour will continue until mid-August (including the Summer Camp in Portugal). Details to be announced soon.

Best Wishes
