Excerpt from a teaching given by Ngak'chang Rinpoche at the San Francisco Shambhala Center in 1997. Part 3 - the role of motivation and choice in human activity - methods that we use to justify our behavior.
Aro is a Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition whose unusual characteristics make it singularly appropriate for many Westerners. Aro is principally concerned with transforming our experience of everyday being, rather than achieving an esoteric or spiritualised mode of existence. Our aim is to engender cheerful courage, perceptive consideration, sincere determination, natural gallantry, graciousness, creativity, and spaciousness.
