Dear Friends of the Ripa International Sangha,

The sunny days remind us that Spring is just around the corner. The awakening of nature encourages us to look on the bright side of life. Moreover, the Swiss government’s talks on easing of Covid measures give us hope that gatherings will soon be held once again without too many restrictions. So much good news to begin the year!

The coming months will be rich in teachings, gatherings and opportunities to practice together, either online or in person. We let you discover below the little gems of teachings that the RIC will be organizing, thanks to the generosity and availability of our very dear Masters.

In addition, some important information about the life of our Sangha…To be read with love and attention!


As you may know, our friends in the Russian Sangha have taken the initiative to accumulate Long Life Prayers for His Eminence. You will find all the details at the bottom of the page.


Please take note of the dates for our 2022 Summer Retreat, which this year will mark the 10th anniversary of the opening of the Ripa International Center! A team is emerging to work on preparations for the festivities. If you would like to be a part of it, please email us at:


And already, a small gift for the entire Sangha in this special year of celebrations! Irene Gil, sister of our Sangha in Spain, has prepared with much love and affection this beautiful calendar to celebrate the first 10 years of the RIC; it shows the dates of our monthly practices and special days on the Tibetan calendar. You may download it HERE.


As some of you may know, the RIC continues to broadcast our monthly practices LIVE, as well as the Sangye Menla practice on the 1st Sunday of each month.
Please mark these dates in your calendar using Irene’s calendar or the website, as well as the Zoom link – it doesn’t change, so you can keep it safe!

Dear Sangha Friends,

With less than 6 weeks to go before the birthday of His Eminence NDR, our accumulation numbers of his Long Life prayers on the Ripa Russia website are less than 50,000 since the project was launched. Surely some of you have not yet registered your number of accumulations.
The purpose of this accumulation; to lengthen the Life of our Masters – and even if it is only by one day – represents by their activity the saving of many lives and souls of suffering beings in the six worlds of Samsara.
Therefore, we encourage each of you to give a little more of your time in order to accumulate two or three malas per day of his short prayer, following the guidelines given by Ripa Russia. It should only take you 15 to 20 minutes.

Thank you for your understanding and looking forward to seeing you soon. To your malas!

Yours In the Dharma,
