We are pleased to announce that Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s teaching schedule for Spring/Summer 2020 is now complete and available to view on his Teaching Schedule page. It shows all confirmed teaching events in Europe, UK and South America. More details will be confirmed over the coming weeks, so check back in to find out more.

For the past five years, Rinpoche has been making audio recordings of most of his talks and teachings. These recordings are automatically uploaded to the Archive and we are able to share these recordings to members of The Ringu Tulku Archive almost as soon as they arrive. This means that members can listen to these recordings as he travels around the globe.
The Online Archive currently contains over 460 teachings from the past 30 years and we are now in the final stages of publishing all remaining recordings from the original archive in Berlin.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the launch of The Ringu Tulku Archive.
This website will become a repository for all of the teachings given by Venerable Ringu Tulku Rinpoche that have been recorded since January 1990 when, at the invitation of students and friends, he first began to travel in the West. He has given countless teachings during that time, on all levels and on all kinds of topics, according to whatever is requested and whoever is listening. The range of topics is immense and varied, interesting for newcomers to Dharma as well as long term students. Rinpoche’s command of the English language means the teachings are given and received with incredible ease – as if, he often says, “I’m chatting with friends while on my holidays”. Even repeated requests for the same topic are responded to with a wonderful freshness and delivered as if for the first time. He has said that what we are receiving through these Dharma teachings is very, very rare and there are actually very few places in the world, even in Tibet, that this level of instruction is given.
What an extraordinary opportunity.
Warmest thanks to everybody who participated in the Shedra Survey in January!
A pdf summary of the survey is now available for downloading from the Survey Page.
Many of you will have the wonderful opportunity to meet Rinpoche on his Spring Tour. We expect to receive new video teachings from Rinpoche during his tour, although less regularly.

As you may have noticed we are in the middle of a summer break here at the Bodhicharya Online Shedra. It’s the holiday season in many countries, so we wish you all a very nice summer vacation. Of course, this is also a good time for catching up on the previous teachings, if you like. You will find all the latest videos here: https://bodhicharya.org/blog/category/study/study-teachings/bodhicharyavatara/ (more…)
On the occasion of the 900 anniversary celebration year of the First Karmapa Düsum Khyenpa (1110-1193) Rinpoche taught from the two remaining volumes of teachings by Düsum Khyenpa. Among those is a collection of dohas. Doha is a song of realization, a poem of experience of the ultimate: the Mahamudra, the Dzogchen; the emptiness.
In the Bodhicharya Online Shedra we can watch or listen to Rinpoche’s teachings on some of these dohas by the First Karmapa.
The first of these teachings to be shared with the Online Shedra was originally given by Rinpoche at Kagyu Samye Dzong Edinburgh in April, 2011.
The teaching from Edinburgh will be posted as three videos. First, there is a lifestory of Düsum Khyenpa. The next two will be the explanation of the doha.
More of Düsum Khyenpa teachings from Rinpoche’s spring tour 2011 will also follow during December.
We hope you will find these wonderful teachings full of joy and blessing.
