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.
