CHINA EARTHQUAKE DISASTER
In this Tibetan region of China over a thousand people died, and many more were injured as a result of the devastating earthquake which struck Yushu county on 14th April. Yushu is in Qinghai province, high on the Tibetan plateau, an impoverished area largely populated by Tibetans. Over 70% of the buildings in the town have been flattened, leaving thousands homeless and shivering in tents overnight in sub-zero conditions. The freezing temperatures and high altitude have hampered search and rescue teams, but hundreds of monks arrived in the worst-affected areas from all over the region to help dig survivors out by hand.
In November 2009 I had the great privilege of spending three weeks in Ringu Tulku’s Bodhicharya Retreat Centre in Rumtek, Sikkim, helping in the early stages of setting up the Sowa Rigpa garden for endangered Himalayan medicinal plants that is Rinpoche’s long-term dream. What follows are some notes on my experience.CONTINUE READING

We have now sent the funds to complete the building of 2 new classrooms at the Ling Gesar School, Manduwala, Dehra Dun
This school is not only for the Tibetan refugees but caters for all the Indian children in the surrounding poor villages. It was set up 20 years ago and before 2003 was near to closure due to lack of funds. Since 2003 a charitable trust in Germany has been set up under the guidance of Ringu Tulku: Bodhicharya Huttenried – Dharma-Tor Charitable Trust, Germany.
To help maintain and improve the education and health facilities, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche has also asked Rigul Trust, with its UK charity registration status, to help fund these projects.
