Aro Books worldwide - An overview - by Mick Rooney

Mick Rooney has published a nice article about us on his blog 'POD, Self Publishing and Independent Publishing'.  He describes Aro as "a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition, a non-profit charity principally concerned with transforming the experience of everyday being, rather than achieving an esoteric or spiritualised mode of existence."

Spacious Passion - Hardback Edition

Ngakma Nor'dzin's book Spacious Passion is now available in hardback from Aro books worldwide

A Buddhist book exploring the sutric teaching of ‘The Four Thoughts that turn the Mind to Practice’ as vividly relevant to our everyday lives: the extraordinarily precious opportunity to live as an honourable human being; the experience of impermanence that pervades our existence as an opportunity to awaken; the emotional and psychological patterning which dominates our lives (karma); and the seemingly endless cycle of dissatisfaction in which we imprison ourselves. Each chapter ends with a series of questions and answers which are both pragmatic and inspirational. Ngakma Nor'dzin has been a practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism for more than twenty years.

We are giving away one copy of the hardback edition of Spacious Passion.  If you would like a copy please write
