Greetings to the Bodhicharya Sangha, in Ireland and beyond. At this year's virtual Summercamp, hosted by the Tsering Paldron and the Portuguese Sangha, with an Irish/Finnish technical team, Rinpoche was able to give teachings on Je Tsongkhapa's text, The Principle Aspects of the Path, under the broad title of 'Training and Path.' Practice and dialogue sessions were hosted via zoom by various members of the international sangha in Germany, US, UK, Ireland, Finland and elsewhere according to timezones and availability. There was a daily social breakfast which is continuing: please please see below.
The team hosted webinars and dialogues, and question and answer sessions with Rinpoche–who is currently based in Gangtok–throughout the week. The whole week provided a marvellous international forum for people to meet and exchange ideas as well as connect with Rinpoche as if he was in our own homes. It also served to connect folk with each other on every continent across the world, from New Zealand to India, to Colorado and Brazil, South Africa and Europe; many who might for various reasons otherwise feel fearful and isolated giving a strong sense of unity and hope.
The Irish Bodhicharya Sangha, facilitated by Ani Karma Trinley Paldron (Pat Murphy) met daily to practise the short White Tara Sadhana adapted by Tenga Rinpoche and the subject of a commentary and reading transmission by Ringu Tulku Rinpoche in June 2020, which can be accessed in the Bodhicharya Archives.
There will be a regular practice session for White Tara every Sunday morning at 11 am UK/ Irish time beginning 9th August 2020.
Karma Trinley also hosted an evening discussion group throughout the Summer camp and this will continue on the first Tuesday of the Month, 7-8pm UK/Ireland,
