Ringu Tulku is presently at home in Gangtok, Sikkim. In November he gave teachings to a retreat group at the Bodhicharya retreat centre near Rumtek, with participants from South Africa and several other countries. The retreatants returned home very inspired and hopefully you will be able to read more about their retreat on our web site including some photographs. They are already planning another retreat for 2011. At the moment another retreat group, organised by Myriam, is in Sikkim at the retreat centre for three weeks.
Rinpoche will go to Bodhgaya on December 6th for the teachings of HH Karmapa on the occasion of the 900th anniversary of the birth of the First Karmapa Düsum Khyenpa. You can find more information on the official website of HH Karmapa www.kagyuoffice.org
On December 13th Rinpoche will return to Sikkim to help organise an international Science and Spiritual Conference with HH the Dalai Lama, which begins on December 20th.
