Tsering Paldron visit 16th October

September 15, 2014

I am pleased to announce a visit to our group by Tsering Paldron on Thursday October 16th.

She will be giving a teaching at our regular venue: The Hamlin Hall, Bosham House, Bosham from 7.30 to 9.00.

All are welcome to attend, we ask that you give a donation to cover costs.

Tsering Paldron was born in Lisbon, Portugal and traveled to Brussels at the age of 19 where she met Lama Kunzang. Her spiritual journey started in 1973. She did a three years’ retreat in the 80’s in France and has received teachings from many Tibetan lamas. She has been teaching and traveling for the past 20 years, wrote a few books (none of them yet published in English). She gives regular courses, seminars, talks and meditation classes and is in charge of Bodhicharya Portugal.

Tenzin Peljor visit 24th July

July 17, 2014

Our old friend Tenzin Peljor will be visiting us at Hamblin Hall next Thursday from 7.30.

He will be teaching on wisdom from the Buddhist perspective.

Tenzin Peljor was born in Germany and has experience of many spiritual traditions including the Catholic Church, the Hindu path, Shamanism and Sufism.

He briefly trained in the New Kadampa tradition and quickly became disillusioned with this school.  In 2002 he made contact with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche and other Lamas from the four Tibetan schools.

In 2005 he studied for Gelong ordination with the support of HH Dalai Lama, which he achieved in 2006.  In 2007 Ringu Tulku requested him to become resident monk at his Berlin Centre.  Since 2008 he has studied in Italy. 

This will be Tenzin’s third visit to our group and he has always spoken from a very practical perspective whilst coming from a deep and traditional lineage.

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

We have revamped and updated our website.

It is still at the same address: http://www.buddhalight.org 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!

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
