In this practical weekend, learn the simple but powerful method to transform everyday experience. bLo sByong (Lo-jong)—Mind Training—provides the tools to understand the application of Vajrayana in everyday life. The slogans of Mind Training become a battle cry of freedom.
In the Aro gTér Lineage of Nyingma Buddhism, the practice of bLo sByong arises from Chekawa Yeshé Dorje in the 12th century, and encompasses seven points of Mind Training and 59 slogans. The slogans are approached from the perspective of Dzogchen and transformative practice.
bLo sByong can be used as a daily reminder of practice, and as a guide to the scope of Buddhist method. It describes realised view, meditation and action, and encourages awakening, empathetic response, and energetic activity to be of benefit to others. Slogans such as ‘Regard all phenomena as dreams’ invite the practitioner to embrace realised view. Others offer direct and clear guidance of how to live realised view, such as ‘Always maintain only a joyful mind’.
The weekend will be led by Ngakma Nor’dzin & Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin – a married teaching couple of the Aro gTér Lineage of Nyingma Buddhism. They have been practitioners for nearly 40 years and have a wealth of practical knowledge and experience in applying Buddhist teachings to the context of working and family life.
All Aro gTer retreats are non-smoking events. Smokers are welcome to attend, but in accordance with Nyingma teaching, and Vajrayana Buddhism in general, we require participants to desist from the smoking of tobacco for the entire duration of the retreat – both on or off the premises where retreats are held. Tobacco in any form should not be brought to the retreat.
