Aro Ling opens today in Bristol

Aro Ling Buddhist Centre for the Arts and Meditation


opens today, 21st May in Bristol.

It is a Buddhist bookshop and meditation equipment supplier, at 127 Gloucester Road, Bristol City Centre. It is also much more than simply a shop. Aro Ling is a creative space, where you will find local artists’ works on display. It is a stimulating space, home to the Chhi’mèd Rig’dzin Research Library, containing a host of titles on Buddhist teachings, and Asian culture, for casual perusal or serious study by practitioners and scholars. It is a healing space, in which Aro Elemental Balancing and Aro Bodywork are practiced, along with other complementary therapies in our therapy room. It is a space to explore – to develop an understanding of oneself through meditationmartial arts, and dance – by spending time practicing in our shrine room. Above all, it is a welcoming space, where you can sit and read, chat with our staff or with passing friends and acquaintances – about meditation, the arts, or whatever enters your mind. 

There will be regular weekly drop in classes and regular activities and events, see the calender for details.

The first teaching event will be this evening and will be a talk on

Reality as Art
with Ngak'chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen at 7.30pm.

Aro Books worldwide : Quotations, Reviews, Discussions

There area now pages on the Aro Books worldwide Facebook discussion board where you can post Quotations, Reviews, Discussions, Links and other information about Spacious Passion, the teachings on Tobacco, Moving Being and Rays of the Sun.

Feel free to post reviews. They can be quite succinct

"For me, even more remarkable is the introduction and commentary by Khandro Déchen, in which she discusses the theory that is realised as practice. The language is crisp and clear and direct; I find it accessable but also subtle, so that every time I read it, something I'd not realised before, or understood becomes apparent or tugs invitingly at me." - Kira O'Reilly reviewing Moving Being
