This Ringu Tulku Archive was built and is managed by dedicated volunteers. All initial development costs were generously funded by Bodhicharya Publications.
However, storing and delivering such a huge amount of media like this in a secure and professional way, requires a paid delivery system. Each time a video or audio file is played, we have to pay for that delivery. Therefore paid annual membership is crucial to the survival of the archive.
Given the preciousness of what we are storing and delivering, we think its worth it and we hope you do too.
Annual membership allows you access to the Archive of teachings and the Courses, except for a few restricted teachings. It also gives you almost immediate access to the audio recordings that Rinpoche makes as he tours the world. We hope to add these to the website as soon as we get them.
All three membership types are the same. The only difference is how much you are able to offer. Each membership is an annual subscription which renews automatically each year, but your subscription can be stopped at any time via your membership account page.
We also offer free membership to the Bodhicharya monastic sangha and individuals in particularly difficult financial circumstances. To apply for that please contact us here.
Membership Payments will be administered by Bodhicharya Publications in the UK. Should any profit arise from the Archive Memberships, it will be used to support other Bodhicharya
