Rinpoche has kindly accepted Bodhicharya Berlin’s request to give a teaching on the two basic meditation practices, Shine (Shamatha) and Lhaktong (Vipassana).
Shine meditation is focused on quieting the mind, to train in calm abiding, open awareness and not following your thoughts and impulses. Lhaktong meditation is aimed at insight, seeing things clearly as they are.
We are very much looking forward to Rinpoche’s explanations and advice to help with our daily practice.

Rinpoche is now continuing the course on the Bodhicharyavatara, and the first new session was 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.

This means that members can listen to these recordings as he travels around the globe.
The Online Archive currently contains over 460 teachings from the past 30 years and we are now in the final stages of publishing all remaining recordings from the original archive in Berlin.

The Yoga of Non Action

You can view the webcast live on either Youtube or Facebook. The webcast team will also try to organise a Q & A session at the end of the teachings. Visit the links below for more information.
It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of The Ringu Tulku Archive.
This website will become a repository for all of the teachings given by Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche that have been recorded since January 1990 when, at the invitation of students and friends, he first began to travel in the West. He has given countless teachings during that time, on all levels and on all kinds of topics, according to whatever is requested and whoever is listening. The range of topics is immense and varied, interesting for newcomers to Dharma as well as long term students. Rinpoche’s command of the English language means the teachings are given and received with incredible ease – as if, he often says, “I’m chatting with friends while on my holidays”. Even repeated requests for the same topic are responded to with a wonderful freshness and delivered as if for the first time. He has said that what we are receiving through these Dharma teachings is very, very rare and there are actually very few places in the world, even in Tibet, that this level of instruction is given.
What an extraordinary opportunity.
