Buenos Aires Dzogchen Community
Delegling, Buenos Aires has kept on moving. These past two years have been very intense, as we were dedicated to comply with the legal requirements demanded by Argentina’s regulations. Although we haven’t yet got our own place, this year we carried on with our collective activities all the same. We regularly meet for Ganapujas and the Transmissions of our dear Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
For the last seven months we kept an uninterrupted schedule of Khaita and Vajra Dance on Saturdays, and completed five workshops of Khaita with a great number of participants. There was also a successful four-day seminar of the Dance of Vajra: “For the benefit of beings” with Adrian Mascherpa. We also had an incredible workshop with Gianfranco Brero on “How to speak in public”. And then, of course, we enjoyed regular courses held by Alejandra Krasnogor and Leticia Recepter, our beloved Yantra Yoga instructors.
We have many projects for 2016. For one, right now, we don’t have to worry about bureaucratic procedures, which take so much time. Next year we will start with monthly studies and practices of Mandarava for the whole year. The practice of Jñana Dakini and Green Tara and also Dance of Vajra and Khaita will continue weekly.
Even though we had a moment of confusion about how to organize all the activities and practices without a place of our own, we were able to understand that we live governed by the impermanence principle. Through it, we learned something wonderful: the main thing is not a solid, concrete space, but the dimension itself. When we saw it with clarity, we were able to generate and keep going more practices and activities.
We are convinced that we will soon have our own space that we want so much, big enough to allow our big Mandala for dancing, but meanwhile, with presence, we continue practicing the precious teachings of our Master.
