Ringu Tulku Rinpoche's dates for Ireland in 2019

Ringu Tulku planted a tree on Wild Birch Farm in
county Wicklow last year where Amy Jennings and
her partner Miles,  have started  an organic farm.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche’s teaching schedule for 2019 is now available to view on his Teaching Schedule page of Bodhicharya International.  It shows all confirmed teaching events in Europe and the UK. More events, for summer, will be confirmed and added to the list over the coming weeks.
Rinpoche will be in Ireland this year at 
Dublin KSDD  13th - 16th May
Dzogchen Beara, 17th - 19th May. 

Further details will follow soon. 

For further information about any other events listed, please contact the locations/ organisers directly using the links supplied on the Teaching Schedule page. You can also find out more about individual groups here.
Since 2015, Rinpoche has been making audio recordings of most of his talks and teachings. These recordings are automatically uploaded to the Archive and we are able to share these recordings to members of The Ringu Tulku Archive almost as soon as they arrive. This means that members can listen to these recordings as he travels around the globe.
The Online Archive contains over 323 teachings from the past 27 years and we are now in the final stages of publishing all remaining recordings from the original archive in Berlin.
