We are still looking for help for January - April 2009

The Treasury of Wisdom will for a second time this winter host a special taskforce in Lodeve near Lerab Ling in order to transform the Treasury of Wisdom database into a well-organized research and archive platform.

We are looking for 6 volunteers to help this project which will be crucial for Rinpoche's work of spreading the teachings in the West. The Treasury of Wisdom is the basis of almost all teaching-related projects in Rigpa like the Homeretreat, courses, Rigpalink.

We already created an extremely successful task force last year with members from France, Australia, and the USA. The participants of last year's task force found it an extremely joyful and valuable experience to come to Lodeve and focus on such an important task while intensifying their practice (Luckily, there are not many distractions in Lodeve.)

If you have some time this Winter and want to join our team in an exciting group effort to make the work of thousands of transcribers, teaching report writers, video and sound people available for research to Rigpa researchers, then please send an email to

Converting all recordings from 1994 into digital files

Good news from the archive in Lodève: We just managed to successfully enter all the sessions from 1994 into the Treasury of Wisdom database. We now can start to submit the videos which are already completely digitized. Regarding the audios: The summer retreat is completely digitized, too and Alain just started doing the rest of the year.
