Sogyal Rinpoche: As I Remember

I was deeply saddened to hear the news of the passing away of Sogyal Rinpoche this afternoon, 28th August 2019. I knew him from childhood and he remained a friend to me all his life. I first met him when he was studying in Dr. Graham’s Home School in Kalimpong. Every weekend and vacation he went to see his Masters and Khenpo’s to study Dharma. He was sent for western education and he later graduated from the prestigious St. Stephan’s College, Delhi, but the deep impact left by Jamyang Khyentse Chokyi Lodro in his childhood never dwindled. His confidence in Dharma and his devotion to his Gurus took him to devote all his life to Dharma. He was teaching Dharma to his fellow students in school as well as in University and continued even when the King of Sikkim sent him to Cambridge University for further studies in the UK.

Life Is A Continuous Celebration

I rest in the natural state of being.
Appearances of six senses flow unobstructed.
Peace and joy permeates without seeking.
Life is just a continuous celebration.

~ Ringu Tulku

Rinpoche shared this stanza during his teaching on the topic Facing Difficulties at Bodhicharya Berlin, where he was staying for the week of his 67th birthday celebrations. The verses had spontaneously arisen in his mind at 4 am on July the 20th, 2019.

The teaching can be listened to in the Teachings Archive.

The passing of Rager Ossel

Rager Ossel, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and Ger Reinders – Brussels 9th April 2019

Rager Ossel or Karma Gyurme was a close friend of mine and I knew him for over 40 years. He often used to come to Sikkim to see HH the 16th Karmapa. He was a devoted student of the Karmapa and his devotion never wavered all through his life. He served the HH the 17th Karmapa also in many ways including as a Director of Karmapa Foundation Europe.

He drove Karmapa in Europe and also in USA. The 16th Karmapa told him not to become a monk but serve the Dharma and people through his training and expertise in computer technology. He started the company InTouch more as a mission than a business and was always ready to help people in whatever way possible. Continue reading

H.E. Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche visits Bodhicharya Berlin

Following on from his first European teachings this year in Brussels last week, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has been teaching in Berlin all this week. On the 18th of April 2019, H.E.

Her Eminence was received by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche together with the Berlin sangha, and after a simple and beautiful blessing ceremony in the garden, bathed in the gentle afternoon sunshine, the Rinpoches and their retinues sat down for a cup of tea. Continue reading
