Rigpa News

Hi everyone, welcome to Rigpa News!

We're opening this page to share recent developments and events happening in Rigpa as they unfold. A lot has happened in the past eight months. Rigpa is undergoing change and transformation and we recognize the need to communicate in many different ways, and more regularly.

Rigpa’s main purpose is to share the wisdom and compassion of the Buddhist teachings, and this is unchanging despite all the challenges we are currently going through.

We look forward to introducing you to the people who make up Rigpa and sharing all kinds of news and information, not only about activities and events happening in Rigpa, but also news from the Buddhist world. We hope to share many voices on this page.

Let us know what you think...

Rigpa's Code of Conduct

Catherine

The new Rigpa Code of Conduct is now signed off by all the Rigpa Boards and is in the process of being implemented.

Life in the Lerab Ling Spiritual Community

I’m an Australian living in a Buddhist community on a relatively remote French plateau. When people discover this, they often ask: “Really?

In reality, we are students from more than 20 different countries with diverse roles, routines, relationships, and diet. Here's a little snapshot of life in our spiritual community with a magnificent Tibetan Buddhist temple at its centre.

A secret army of support through prayers

Gill

New to Buddhism in 2002, I couldn’t understand how writing my recently deceased father’s name on a piece of paper, a ‘prayer list’, could possibly help him or me. Skip ahead 15 years when my mother was dying, after practising Buddhism for a few years I had gained a whole new understanding and appreciation for how prayers can help us at any time of life—either when we are facing challenges or even as a support in good times.

Making Rigpa’s values more visible with a code of conduct

Catherine

In the past I worked for a business that created a new set of shared values and code of behaviour after it merged with another company. It was surprisingly rewarding to contemplate values in a commercial setting—it was so different to what we normally spent our time on. In contrast, ethical behaviour is something Buddhists often study, contemplate and discuss from the outset of their studies. It’s an integral part of the Buddhist path.
