New Year Message 2021

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.

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.

༢༠༡༨ གསར་དུ་བཞད་པའི་ལོ་སར་ཉིན་སྐུ་ཉིད་སྐུ་འཁོར་དང་བཅས་པ་ལ་བཀྲ་ཤིས་བདེ་ལེགས་ཞུ་བ་དང་།
ཁྱེད་རྣམས་བྱམས་བརྩེ་་དང་ཕུགས་འདུན་ལྡན་པའི་སེམས་ཀྱི་ཞི་བདེ་དང་མི་འབྲལ་བར།
དུས་རྒྱུན་དུ་དགའ་སྟོན་དང་སྐད་ཅིག་རེ་བཞིན་བདེ་དགའི་ངང་དུས་འདའ་ཞིང་།
ཉིན་རེ་བཞིན་རང་གཞན་ལ་ཕན་པའི་བྱ་བ་རེ་བསྒྲུབ་ནས་རང་གིས་རང་ཉིད་ལ་བློ་ཁེངས་པ་ཞིག་འབྱུང་བར་ཤོག།
