The Tergar Meditation Community, founded by revered Dharma teacher and master of the Karma Kagyu and Nyingma lineages of Tibetan Buddhism Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche, has announced that it will host a free online teaching by the esteemed Lama Ringu Tulku Rinpoche. The public teaching will take place on November 18 on the theme “Mahamudra: A simple path to a fulfilled life”.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche's live teaching will provide insight into: Mahamudra, known as a quick path to enlightenment, helping practitioners recognize the true nature of mind; why Mahamudra is relevant today; how we can put the teachings of Mahamudra into practice; and how Mahamudra can guide practitioners in recognizing their true nature.
“At the heart of the Vajrayana tradition is the path of Mahamudra,” Tergar said in an announcement shared with BDG. “Mahamudra has been practiced over the centuries by men and women from all walks of life, leading them to the direct realization of their own true nature. During this event, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will bring to life the teachings of Mahamudra, helping us understand how we, like the men and women who walked before us, can use these profound teachings to connect with who we truly are and recognize the inner Buddha. »
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche is a master of the Kagyu school of Vajrayana Buddhism. Born in 1952 in the traditional Kham region of eastern Tibet, Rinpoche was recognized by His Holiness the 16th Gyalwang Karmapa as the incarnation of a tulku from the Ringu monastery. During his formal education, he studied with some of the most revered and distinguished masters of the Nyingma and Kagyu traditions, including: Thrangu Rinpoche; Dodrupchen Rinpoche; Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche; and the Gyalwang Karmapa.
In 1997, he founded the international organization Dharma Bodhicharya to preserve and transmit Buddhist teachings and promote intercultural dialogues as well as educational and social projects.
Rinpoche is the author of a number of books in Tibetan and European languages, including: Path to Buddhahood: Teachings on the Gampopa Jewel of Liberation (Shambhala Publications, 2003); The Ri-me Philosophy of Jamgön Kongtrul the Great (Shambhala Publications, 2006); And Bold Steps Towards Fearlessness: The Three Vehicles of Buddhism (Snow Lion Publications, 2005).
“Do you want to start connecting with who you really are? Have you heard of the master yogis and realized yoginis of the past and wondered what they practiced? If so, this event is an ideal opportunity to learn from a deeply revered lineage holder, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche,” Tergar emphasized. (Tergar)

The Tibetan word for Buddha is sangye and this word is very evocative. It means “awake and fulfilled.” What awakens and grows within us is not a new or different intelligence. This is not something we have ever experienced before. It is the realization of what we already know, our true nature. — Ringu Tulku Rinpoche
