What is Buddhism? A religion, a philosophy, a tool to train our mind, a spiritual path to understanding ourselves, or a lifestyle that is defined by wholesome and unwholesome actions?
In these recordings Ringu Tulku Rinpoche explains the basics of the Buddhist view and practice through his clear and insightful answers to 61 simple questions for all beginners on the path.
This series is launched with Rinpoche’s answer to the first question: “What is Buddhism?” and then to all the rest of the questions.
All 61 videos can also be found in our YouTube playlist. On Youtube, subtitles in different languages are being added to all episodes. So far we will have subtitles in French, German and Finnish. If you would like to volunteer making subtitles in any other language besides these, please contact us.
‘Answers for Beginners’ was recorded by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in Sikkim during October – November 2020 and January 2021, and produced by Ela Crain.
