Aro gTér Lineage
The Aro gTér Lineage is named after its founder, the female visionary Kyungchen Aro Lingma, pictured here. She taught in Tibet at the beginning of the 20th Century. Whilst there are myriad small family lines in the Tibetan Buddhist traditions, the Aro gTér Lineage has deep roots, which go back to the origins of Buddhism in Tibet. Aro Lingma herself comes from a line of accomplished female practitioners that begins with Yeshé Tsogyel – the female Tantric Buddha. Yeshé Tsogyel, together with Padmasambhava, founded the Nyingma tradition and so established Buddhism in Tibet.
For the general public, we offer talks, a course of classes, weekend retreats, weekly meditation groups, and a host of learning materials including a free on-line meditation course, books, newsletters, and several web sites. Forthcoming events at Aro Ling Bristol and Aro Ling Cardiff can be seen on our calendars, whilst for other events, please check our world-wide calendar.
