About the charity:

Sang-ngak-chö-dzong is the UK charity of the Aro Tradition and supports the preservation of Buddhist teachings according to the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.

The name Sang-ngak-chö-dzong was given to us by His Holiness Düd’jom Rinpoche specifically for our work of establishing and preserving the non-celibate householder tradition (gö-kar chang-lo’i dé) of Tibetan Buddhism in the West.

Sang-ngak-chö-dzong holds UK Charity Number 1019886. Its constitution was adopted on 20th February 1993. Charity records are available from the Charity Commission and Open Charities.

About the tradition:

The Aro gTér is a stream of Vajrayana Buddhism in which ordination is congruous with romance, marriage, and family life. It focuses on the teaching and practice of the Inner Tantras from the point of view of Dzogchen, an essential non-dual teaching.

The Aro gTér tradition is possibly unique in its applicability to Western people. Due to the predominance of the Dzogchen perspective, the Aro gTér emphasizes: assimilation with everyday working life; appreciative sexual equality; the spiritual dimension of romantic relationship; artistic creativity; the pursuit of life-enhancing engagement with the Arts, and challenging physical skills, such as equestrianism. Students practice within the context of their ordinary lives: marrying, raising families, and engaging in the activities of life which are common to the general population. Practitioners in the Aro tradition reside in Great Britain, North America, South America, Europe and Scandinavia.
