I and all the followers of His Holiness Gyalwang Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje in Europe celebrate his 36th Birthday on the 26th of June. May he live long and turn the wheel of dharma to help countless beings. May all the obstacles to his health and activities be completely cleared so that he will be able to bring great benefit to the whole world. May all our prayers and good wishes, that we earnestly offer, be effortlessly accomplished.
This humble offering of wishing prayers is made on the New Year of Iron Ox Year.
May you have a constant smile on your face and live long and healthy.
May there always be laughter in your speech and bring solace to countless lives.
May your heart be ever filled with loving kindness, joy and peace.
May all your wishes come true in this year without making any efforts.
We just want to let you know that the Buddhist Society London is starting a free 10 lesson online course on Thursday 18th February.
Each lesson will explore a chapter of Shantideva’s Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will analyse the Bodhicharyavatara, often translated as A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, an 8th-century masterpiece from Indian scholar and yogi Shantideva. In each of the ten lessons, H.E. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will focus on one of the ten chapters of the Bodhicharyavatara.

My mother passed away a week ago. I miss her deeply but not sad. 68 years I basked at her loving presence. This is the time to celebrate that fortune. She only thought of what to give. Never lost her genuine smile and good heart. Even in our worst days She never let any visitors to leave Without a cup of hot tea. I wish to thank all who sent me love And kind messages I wish you all a wonderful New Year With health, wealth and harmony And lots of kindness.

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will give a teaching on how to transform anger and fear in daily life, with reference to the Bodhicharyavatara, The Way of the Bodhisattva, an 8th-century masterpiece from Indian scholar and yogi Shantideva.
Bodhicharyavatara is regarded as one of the most important Tibetan Buddhist texts and is studied extensively by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners everywhere. Rinpoche will deliver his understanding of the text in a way that will make it fully accessible to anyone who is looking for support and help in these times.
Rinpoche is now continuing the course on the Bodhicharyavatara, andthe first new sessionwas posted today.
Bodhicharyavatara is regarded as one of the most important Tibetan Buddhist texts and is studied extensively by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners everywhere. Rinpoche will deliver his understanding of the text in a way that will make it fully accessible to anyone who is looking for support and help in these times whether or not they are buddhist. According to the His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the buddha dharma should not be taught as a religion, but more as a general teaching applicable to all traditions; it must be useful and help us deal with life’s problems. He feels that in this way it will be beneficial to everyone.
Each session will be around 15 minutes long, and there will be a new teaching each week. We are currently in Chapter 6, but before going into the chapter, Rinpoche begins by giving a synopsis of the Bodhicharyavatara, the name and subject of this book.
Everybody can follow Rinpoche’s new teachings as they are posted every week on the Archive Bodhicharyavatara page. There you will also find all the previous sessions. You don’t have to be an Archive member to view them. However, you may consider becoming one to have access to all the additional materials for the course, like transcripts, and all the other recorded teachings in the Ringu Tulku Archive.
Questions to Rinpoche can be submitted through the teaching page, and he will answer them in a later video. If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
You can visit the Bodhicharyavatara course here on the Ringu Tulku Archive:
Rinpoche has recorded a brief message for everyone which you can watch above. More details will follow regarding the continuation of the Bodhicharyavatara teachings online.
