Aro Ling Cardiff August/September newsletter -

Aro Ling Cardiff
Vajrayana Buddhism
We had a splendid retreat in July and are looking forward to our next one in a couple of weeks time. Thereafter we will have a holiday and so there will be a few classes cancelled during the next six weeks or so. All schedule details will be kept up to date on the website aro-ling.org/cardiff, on Meetup.com/aro-ling-cardiff, and on the Aro Ling Cardiff blog. Please do check the schedule before attending a class, meditation group, or event over the next few weeks. 

On September 28th the Aro gTér Lineage Holders, Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen, will be offering a blessing ceremony for the new gompa (meditation room). We are very much looking forward to this evening event.

The first full weekend of events will be on the first weekend in October, the 1st and 2nd of October. The topic for the Saturday teachings will be ‘Four Good Reasons to Meditate’. Full details for this event are on the website.

We hope you are enjoying the extracts from the book Illusory Advice by Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin that are appearing regularly on the blog.

Extracts from this and other Aro gTér Lineage publications appear once a week on a blog called Aro Quotation. If you would like to receive the Aro Quotations by email, please go to the blog and subscribe.

The Aro gTer Lineage also offers a free meditation course. The course is delivered in weekly emails.

To support the Lineage’s appeal to establish a residential retreat centre in Wales, please see the  information at http://arobuddhism.org/drala-jong/drala-jong-appeal.html or go to the Drala Jong appeal blog.  

We hope you are having an enjoyable summer and finding a little sunshine. We look forward to welcoming you to our gompa soon.
Best wishes from Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin

sKu-mNyé is a physical yoga practice. It offers a range of movements, from simple and gentle to demanding and vigorous – so there is something for everyone. All are welcome whatever age or level of fitness. A wonderful form of exercise that is refreshing and invigorating. Each class is 1 hour.

Meditation group and daytime meditation – beginners and experienced meditators welcome. Short periods of meditation are interspersed with yogic song and chant. Discover emptiness and self-awareness. 

Dance dancing embraces many qualities of natural heroism: considerate awareness of the other dancers, politeness and dignity, sensitivity and enjoyment, and light-hearted and wholehearted engagement with the pattern and movement of the dance. The focus will be on the dignity and formality of the dances of the Georgian period. Occasionally Tibetan folk dance will also be taught.

Aro Ling Cardiff meets at 5 Court Close, Whitchurch, Cardiff, CF14 1JR. The practice room is on the ground floor with direct access from the street, and is wheelchair accessible.

All classes and groups are led by ordained Buddhists with many years of practice experience.

Donations are requested to cover the costs of advertising, and so that Aro Ling Cardiff can make donations to the Buddhist charity, Sang-ngak-chö-dzong #1019886.
