A retreat with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche!
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is renowned for his warm and humorous teaching style, and for his ability to transmit the most complicated teachings in a remarkably accessible way.
On this week-long retreat, Rinpoche will take us through the whole Buddhist path, from the simplest meditation practice to the vast view of our potential for complete enlightenment, touching on a dazzling range of teachings and techniques along the way.
Teaching directly in English and drawing on classic sacred texts, Rinpoche will share his personal understanding of each of the three yanas, the three traditional Buddhist paths, which can be encapsulated as peace, compassion and wisdom. He will reveal the vital role of each yana in the attainment of genuine realization, and show how the three yanas combined offer a complete, coherent, integral path. Rinpoche will show how, wherever we are on that path, whether we are just beginning or very experienced, we can use the wisdom embodied in the three yanas to meet the challenges we face in our lives.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche was born in Kham Lingtsang, in eastern Tibet, and was recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa as the incarnation of one of the tulkus of Ringu monastery, a Kagyüpa monastery in his home province. He studied with some of the most distinguished khenpos of the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions and received teachings from many outstanding masters, including Thrangu Rinpoche, Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and the Gyalwang Karmapa. He has taught at Rigpa centres around the world.
