Ven Rinchen at Bosham 14th May

April 29, 2015


Hot on the tails of Lama Zangmo’s visit last month, we are pleased to welcome Venerable Rinchen again – Thursday 14th May at Hamblin Hall, Bosham House starting 7.30 prompt.  He will be teaching on Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche’s pith instructions for the Dzogchen meditation.  Rinchen is based in the Caribbean where he runs Bodhicharya groups for Ringu Tulku Rinpoche.

Dzogchen is a Tibetan word that means Great Perfection. On the outer level it refers to a method of meditative practice that enables us to recognize our true nature. Ultimately, great perfection is that very nature: the natural, primordially pure nature of mind. (Lama Surya Das)

Ringu Tulku teaching in London

April 20, 2014

Ringu Tulku will be teaching over the weekend of 3rd and 4th May at Samye Dzong in Bermondsey, London.

Click here  to link with the Samye Dzong website for more details and to book a place.  You will need to scroll right down to the bottom on the page to book via the Paypal button.

Saturday’s teaching will be the Kagyu lineage and the Sunday teachings are on the Four Seals of Mahamudra.

We are hoping Rinpoche will return to the UK for more teaching dates later in the summer and will post details when we hear more.

The text following is from the Samye Dzong website:

The forefathers in the Kagyu lineage are known as the “Golden Rosary.” The lineage of the Kagyu emphasizes the continuity of oral instructions passed on from master to student. This emphasis is reflected in the literal meaning of “Kagyu.”

The Four Seals of Mahamudra are the four main principles of Buddhism and are sometimes also called the ‘Four Keys of the Buddha’s teaching’. These four main principles that mark a doctrine as Buddhist are:

  1. All composite things are impermanent
  2. All that is tainted entails suffering
  3. Realization is Peace
  4. All phenomena are devoid of independent entity




New website for BBG

March 29, 2014

We have revamped and updated our website.

It is still at the same address: and in addition to the previous pages and features will be hosting audio teachings from Rinpoche and other visiting teachers.

The new site is up and running and will be growing over the next few weeks as we refine and add to the pages.

Do take a look and send any feedback via the “contact us” page on the site.

We still don’t have dates for Rinpoche’s visit to the UK this year, however he will be attending HH Dalai Lama’s teachings in Germany and HH Karmapa’s teachings, also in Germany.Additionally Rinpoche is at the Kagyu Monlam in France and the Bodhicharya Summer School, so he does have a busy summer planned already!

We will post details as they arise……

Tibetan New Year of the Wood Horse

by RINPOCHE on MARCH 1, 2014


With each year passing
I realize how precious the life is.
With each day passing
I realise how fast the time moves.
Do we have time to waste
In being nasty to each other?
Isn’t it wiser to make our day nice
By being just kind towards each other.
Why not start on this auspicious day,
The New Year of the Wood Horse.

Live Compassionately – toward yourself, the environment, & all beings.

With greetings from

Ringu Tulku
