Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s recordings on the Bardos

Dear Friends,

Over the coming months, we have the privilege of being able to share the voice recordings of four talks on Bardo given by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Hamburg in 2016.

Visit the blog here: www.livinganddyinginpeace.org

Bardo in Tibetan means in between, something hanging, in transition, on travel, changing situation.

Life is a bardo, death is a bardo, getting to the next life is a bardo.

By subscribing to the blog, you will automatically receive emails of new postings.

Now we start with the Bardo of Life.

Be happy, be joyful, go well,

Margaret Richardson

Happy New Year 2017

Circumambulating the freshly renovated Boudhanath stupa I observed thousands of people from all over the world walking around it peacefully with their prayers in heart. This world heritage pilgrimage place was not built by a powerful king, a wealthy sponsor or a teacher with many followers. It was built by a poor and ordinary village woman who worked at the kings chicken farm solely with her resolution, resourcefulness and resilience.

I would like to share with you the peace and tranquility of this stupa and wish that you will face 2017 with resolution, resourcefulness and resilience.

Wish you a Very Happy New Year.

Dear friends worldwide,

It is with a happy heart that we have a new website:

This website is about living and dying in peace and with dignity. We have a focus around dying, death and after death. This is a team endeavour with ongoing support in progress.

On the home page there is a box where one can sign up for regular postings.

There is also a link for requesting prayers on this website.

Thank you very much.

May all beings be kind to each other.
Be happy, be joyful, go well,

Bodhicharya Publications update

book-background

Bodhicharya Publications are very happy to let the wider Bodhicharya community know about our latest developments, following our AGM last month:

  • We have sold around 4000 books in the last two years. These are sales of all Rinpoche’s books that we publish, which are currently: 6 Lazy Lama Series books; 7 Heart Wisdom Series books; 1 book of stories.
  • Our largest investment of profits, made this year, has gone into creating a new online web archive which will give members access to all Rinpoche’s teachings in recorded format. This large scale project is very much still in progress but you will be the first to hear when it is ready….
  • We also made a donation to Rigul Trust of £1500 from profits made.
  • We published two new titles over the last 12 months: “Parables from the Heart,” a collection of Rinpoche’s stories, edited by Patricia Little, with Mary Heneghan. And “Being Pure: The Practice of Vajrasattva,” compiled and edited by Mary Heneghan.
  • All our titles remain on sale from the Bodhicharya website Book Shop and Amazon.

Thank you for supporting this work through buying Rinpoche’s books – we hope you enjoy them.
