We would like to thank everyone for their generosity in giving to the Sikkim Earthquake Relief Fund. The finer details of the distribution of this fund is work in progress with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche working on this in Sikkim at the moment. The roads in Northern Sikkim are not yet open.
Rinpoche travelling to Jakarta and Singapore.
Rinpoche tells us:
“I am invited to give a keynote address at the 7th Global Buddhist Conference at Jakarta and then a week long teaching at Singapore. I will be leaving Gangtok on the 7th.”
In Singapore, Rinpoche will be giving a teaching on Chenrezig. It is with great joy that we have managed to ship copies of the Chenrezig book, by Ringu Tulku, to Singapore costing ‘an arm and a leg’ (ie. very expensive!). This is a service to the Dharma and Dharma is paramount in this situation. Pat Murphy is receiving these and will be an ambassador for Rigul Trust for raising awareness and funds for Ringu Tulku’s homeland, his monastery, the health clinic and school in Rigul, Tibet.
We invite everyone to help Rinpoche with his humanitarian health, education and poverty relief projects through Rigul Trust. It is so heart warming to know that the work of Rigul Trust is becoming known internationally after 3 years with Rinpoche and the three of us trustees endeavouring to build a sound foundation for the Trust to reach as many of Rinpoche’s students world wide as possible. We are so grateful to all the people who have been involved in translating and proof reading the latest Trust newsletter into French, German, Portuguese and now a Spanish translation is underway. Please spread the word of Rigul Trust and the name of Tibet with the great challenges the Tibetans in China face with a loss of human rights.
We invite you to join us with Tara prayers and mantra recitation for Rinpoche’s safe travels as he leaves home for his journey to Jakarta and Singapore.
Tara Mantra – Ani Choying Drolma
OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA
OM. To the transcendent subduer, Arya Tara, I prostrate.
Homage to the glorious one, who frees with TARE.
With TUTTARE you calm all fears.
You bestow all success with TURE.
To the sound of SOHA, I pay great homage.
Dedicate the positive potential gained from meditating on Tara and her mantra to the perfect happiness, safety and well-being of Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and all beings.
Be happy, be joyful, go well,
Margaret Richardson, David Curtis and Jude Tarrant.
Trustees of Rigul Trust.
