    If you perform two simple searches on google, one of them with he being and the other with he been (or similar ones) you will find a lot of examples.

    Hello!
    You have to use "being" to:
    1.Form the present continuous passive sentences:
    For instance,
    The question is being discussed at the meeting.
    A new theatre is being built here.
    He lost his temper and said he was always being made to do everything he didn`t want to.
    2. Form the past continuous passive sentences:
    A new play was being written by him when we came to see him.
    3. Form sentences using Present participle passive:
    The large house being built in our street.
    Being asked whether he intended to return soon, he answered that he would be away for about three months.
    The weather being fine, they went for a walk.
    The contract is drawn up in two languages. both texts being equally valid.
    4.Form sentences using indefinite gerund passive:
    He has no objections to being sent there.
    We insisted on contract being signed immediately.
    We insisted on the cases being taken to the warehouse immediately
    And in many other cases, for example:
    Besides being clever, he is very industrious.
    I`m afraid of being late.
    The negotiations are still far from being ended.


    You have to use been
    1. When you are forming sentences in the present perfect continuous:
    I have been learning English for 5 years.
    I`ve been doing my homework since dinner.
    2. When you are forming sentences in the past perfect continuous:
    By the end of the year she will have been teaching music for thirty years.
    We will have been playing tennis for half an hour by then.
    3. When you are forming sentences using perfect gerund passive:
    He was surprised at having been asked about it.
    4. When you are forming sentences using perfect participle passive (it is used very rare):
    Having been dried and sorted, the goods were placed in a warehouse.
    This sentence is usually forming in another way:
    After being dried and sorted the goods were placed in a warehouse.

    Conclusion: you should by a good grammar book and study all these examples very carefully.

    P.S. I`m not an English teacher. I`m a Russian student, but I DO hope I helped you.

    Best wishes,
    Max.

    The weather being fine, they went for a walk.
    Sorry, it has nothing to do with
    Present participle passive, it is called absolute participial construction.


    'you should by' of course it should be BUY
