Rigul Children Telling Stories

Dear Friends Worldwide,

On November 18th, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche posted the following news from Rigul on the Bodhicharya International Facebook page:

“A new special program that started in Rigul is now being appreciated by many other places in Tibet. In “Rigul Children Telling Stories,” the children tell all the stories, legends and jokes that they learnt from their parents and grand parents. This program was organised by Rigul School. It is a good way to preserve the old folk culture of the land, a culture which is slowly being forgotten.”
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Rigul Trust is celebrating ten years of raising funds for education, welfare projects and poverty relief among the Tibetan communities of Rigul and other Himalayan regions.

Over the last decade we have funded the children’s education at Rigul School, including text books, boarding costs, teachers and cooks salaries as well as two free hot school meals daily.

In addition, the Rigul Trust also covers running costs for the health clinic, including the salaries of Dr Chuga and Ani Choden the nurse.

On top of that we funded a dining room so the the children do not have to eat outside, built the first ever toilets in Rigul and financed an underground water pipe, which carries water from the stream to five taps within the village.

The Trust has also donated towards disaster relief in Yushu, Ladakh, Sikkim and Nepal.

A very big thank you. Your generosity has helped thousands of people over the ten years.

If you would like to donate to the school in Rigul, please visit www.rigultrust.org and click on DONATE. If you donate with the Celebration option a kind sponsor is offering 25% extra on your donation up to £40,000 GBP

Be happy, be joyful, go well,
Margaret Richardson
Founder of Rigul Trust

Rigul Trust celebrates 10th anniversary

Rigul Trust was founded ten years ago in 2008 and to celebrate the Trust is aiming to raise one years funding for Rigul school and health clinic amounting to £40,000.

For every donation given from now, a kind sponsor is also offering an additional 20% for each donation until that target is reached as gratitude to Ringu Tulku for his great kindness, wisdom and compassion. If you would like to donate please click the donate button below or on the Rigul Trust donation page.





Thanking you for your great kindness.

There is a small chance that more money than is needed may be raised for any project. If this happens and with your agreement, which we will assume has been given unless we hear otherwise, your gift will be used wherever the need is greatest.

Inauguration of the Bodhicharya Berlin Stupa

On the morning of July 19th, 2018, the Stupa on the grounds of Bodhicharya Berlin was inaugurated.

It was a joyous event shared by many friends from near and far. Together with our special guest, the Very Venerable Master Hai Tao, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche led the ceremony, assisted by Khenpo Karma Namgyal.

A Stupa is the symbolic representation of enlightened mind, to bring peace and harmony to the area and the world. People from all faiths are invited to find a place here to sit quietly, meditate or walk around the Stupa, to feel the healing qualities and to increase their positive potentials.
