The Stream of New Videos on YouTube Continues

We are currently in the process of preparing a number of extracts of a classic teaching of Sogyal Rinpoche from Adelaide, 2 February 2004, for publication on YouTube. Here is the latest extract:



The entire teaching has been published before as a Rigpalink in April&May 2004 under the title "Finding Peace, Compassion and Wisdom in a Complex World". You can still purchase this teaching from the ZAM Webshop (have a look into the category "Finding Peace, Compassion and Wisdom in a Complex World).

A New Blog for Rigpa Students

There is a new blog out there for all Rigpa students to get the latest information on Rigpa's and Sogyal Rinpoche's activities. It contain news, photos and video material and links to other websites, to help keep you informed of all the most important goings on in Lerab Ling and around the world.

1001 Originals and Counting


Yesterday we surpassed the magic number of 1000 entries in our Originals Collection in the Treasury of Wisdom Database. Each entry in this collection contains a complete set of audio or video recordings of a single teaching. Such a set may contain somewhere between 1 and 120 files. That means that we have filed the original recordings of more than 500 sessions from teachings as early as 1987 up to teachings from last month into our database. Files in this database are regularly checked for file corruption and they are of course being backed up.
The total size of all the files of these 1001 entries is 11.4 Tera Bytes.

Another video of Rinpoche teaching on YouTube

We have now posted a second teaching extract of a teaching of Sogyal Rinpoche on YouTube:



This piece is taken from a public video called "Natural Great Peace" which was produced on the occasion of the visit of His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Lerab Ling, September 2000. Most of "Natural Great Peace" shows Rinpoche reading out the "Natural Great Peace" text (available from the ZAM Store), but he also asked us to add in two extracts from previous teachings which he selected himself. This YouTube video is the first of these extracts. It is part of a teaching that Sogyal Rinpoche gave in Los Angeles on 9 June 1999. And it is one of my all-time favorites. Enjoy!

Sogyal Rinpoche on YouTube

Today we have uploaded the first teaching of Sogyal Rinpoche onto YouTube.



This is a small extract of a teaching that Sogyal Rinpoche gave in Paris, 21 December 2005 (with a tiny insert from a teaching in Lerab Ling).

We hope that this will be the first in a long series of publicly available videos of Sogyal Rinpoche.
