New Lazy Lama book – Loving Kindness


In this seventh booklet in the Lazy Lama series, Ringu Tulku looks at how we all need love and asks us to consider the benefits of generating loving kindness for each other. Rinpoche shares with us an Indian saying;

‘ When the trees support each other then we have houses and cities, when human beings support each other we have society, we have civilization.’

So, the whole of society, of civilization, survives by supporting and helping each other. But how can we, as imperfect human beings, offer even an ‘imperfect’ love, and is that enough? Yes, says Rinpoche, we can and should start from where we are. We can offer loving kindness, help and support for each other now, while aspiring towards an ideal unconditional love. Rinpoche encourages us, in these seemingly simple and concise teachings, to develop the courage of a hero dedicated to love, and to find our true brave heart.

It is available to pre-order now in the Book Shop.

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.
