October and December days of teachings at Aro Ling Cardiff, news

The new year of events at Aro Ling Cardiff was beautifully started with a day of teachings with the Aro gTér Lineage Holders, Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen. The Topic for the day, The Art of Chaos, was appreciated by the roomful of attendees. Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen have said that they will return and teach the ritual practice of gCod if wished, and if people practise the yang-sang gCod that they taught on this occasion.


lunch break


Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin were delighted to be invited to attend the opening of the tea room at the Tibetan Buddhist Centre in Canton. Kagyu Samye Dzong Cardiff, on Cowbridge Road, is a lovely centre and Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin were delighted to join their thriving community to celebrate the opening. Lama Yeshé Losal of Samyé Ling gave an inspiring talk. It is always wonderful to have the two streams of ordained practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, the monastic and yogic traditions, meeting together.

Aro Ling Cardiff - summer recess, fifth year, donations to Drala Jong, visit of Lineage Holders

Aro Ling Cardiff thanks you all for your support over the last year. Aro Ling Cardiff has gone from strength to strength since moving to Court Close and away from the small rented room in  Whitchurch Village. We look forward to beginning the fifth year of Aro Ling Cardiff in September, with a special Saturday event ‘The Art of Chaos’ with Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen, the Aro gTér Lineage Holders.


This month Aro Ling Cardiff will be paying £250 from your generous donations to the Drala Jong appeal for the establishment of a retreat centre in Wales.

Aro Ling Cardiff is now having a summer recess for the month of August with the July 25th meeting being the final one till September. Over the month of August, Nor’dzin and ’ö-Dzin are intending to replace the temporary fabric ceiling in the meditation room with a wooden ceiling. If you have a free weekend in August and would like to help with this work, please do get in touch (aro.ling.cardiff@gmail.com  07092 010756).
