As you know, Rinpoche is always travelling and teaching extensively, and spending much of his time on tour helping and guiding his many students. Now he is staying with family in Nepal and receiving some treatment for his arm. On this occasion we would like to ask you to do some prayers and practice for Rinpoche’s good health and wellbeing.
If you wish, you can do the Tara practice or recite the Tara mantra, if you are familiar with them, and dedicate for this purpose.
Or you can also dedicate any other Dharma practice you do for Rinpoche’s good health, wellbeing and long life.
Thank you very much.

Lama Tsering Paljor’s health has deteriorated and he is now in Kolkata for medical treatment. He is very kindly being taken care of by Sudhir and his Mystic Yoga colleagues.
Lama left Sikkim on September 23, and after the treatment at Kolkata he wants to return to Tibet to his home and his monastery.
Mystic Yoga is kindly taking care of his current medical expenses.
The post operative care and travel to Tibet is going to involve more expenses, so any contributions towards that are welcome. Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has asked us to help to communicate his request for help to his friends worldwide.
If you would like to make a contribution, please visit the ‘Sikkim BMC Resident Lama Fund’ section at the bottom of this webpage.
Rinpoche says that Lama wants to thank everyone very, very much for all your help, without it he says he would be dead by now or in a very, very bad shape.
Lama also sends to all of you his prayers and best wishes and many tashi deleks!
Thank you very much!
Today is the trifold anniversary
Of Buddha Sakya Muni.
He was born, got enlightened
And attained parinirvana
On the full moon days of this month
26 centuries before now.
This is the time for us to remember that great apostle of peace.
The teacher who taught us to train
Our mind and awaken within us
The great wisdom and compassion.

Renowned German filmmaker Niko von Glasow’s newest film is now available online!
Click on the image above to go watch the film.
The film shows Ringu Tulku not only as a Buddhist master and teacher – it also offers a personal, humorous and honest insight into his family and working life. It shows Ringu Tulku preparing four students for a retreat which lasts three years, three months and three days, in Sikkim, North India. Spending time with the Lazy Lama gives the audience the opportunity to reflect on their own lives, and find ways to create more room for spirituality, meditation, empathy and the right kind of “laziness”.
See Palladio Films for more information.
The funeral went very well today. We were worried about the weather as the monsoon has not yet left and it is all the time cloudy and rainy. Bu this morning the Kanchenjunga was fully visible. The sky was completely clear and blue.
The cremation was done at Taktse were you could directly see the Kanchenjunga mountains. The fire offering was done by two group of 10 Lamas each. Nyingma group performed with Chenrezik sadhana and The Kagyu group performed with Amitabha sadhana. There appeared all different forms of clouds in the sky and when the fire was lit a group of eagles circled in the sky above for about 3 or 4 times and then disappeared. The smoke only blew towards the west all through the hours and the body also fell its head towards the west.
Many well wishers from Sikkim as well as from outside Sikkim came and gave us support. I have received sympathy and good wishes from all over the world and I would like to thank all of them on this occasion.
Today the Sakya and Ngorpa Monastery in Gangtok also performed the name burning practice through the sadhana of Vairochana where about 70 monks were in Summer Retreat. We offered lunch and distributed donations.
It seems Uncle Thondup Dorjee came out of samadhi after around 70 hours with some liquid coming out of the nostril. His body still was much more flexible than when he was alive. Now we have put him in the box with due ceremony. The funeral will take place on Wednesday 5th September.
I have received many messages of condolence and good wishes from many of my friends and students. I would like to thank them all as I can not send mails to each of them at this moment.
