Vajra romance is explored as the living application and dynamism of the ‘Nyi-da Mélong’ – a Dzogchen tantra from the cycle of visionary revelations, realised by the enigmatic Nyingma treasure discoverer Khyungchen Aro Lingma (1886-1923). The Nyi-da Mélong puts to rest the myth that celibacy holds demonstrable spiritual advantages over a natural life. It opens the door to those who are inspired to integrate every aspect of human life with spiritual practice.

“To fall in love is to taste the energy of existence and non-existence. To fall in love is to go beyond the boundaries that we set up for ourselves. To experience the real meaning of a loving relationship is to live with impeccable verve in the sheer vividness of each moment.”
Ngak’chang Rinpoche

Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen are the current holders of the Aro gTér, a lineage of ordained non-monastic yogis and yoginis of the Nyingma Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
