Vajrayana Buddhism contains myriad practices for the discovery of our individual energetic being. Once discovered this energy can be transformed through its own enlightened potential. This is called self-liberation. One such practice – from the section of vajrayana called mahayoga - is Sky Weaving. The name derives from the Tibetan term namkha (nam mKha’) - literally ‘sky’. The practice of namkha is ancient, with roots beyond the arrival of vajrayana in the Himalayas. Sky weaving as found within the Aro Lineage of the Nyingma Tradition. Nyingma is the oldest of the four Buddhist traditions of the Himalayan countries.

This blog explores the practice of Sky Weaving, in terms of how it manifests withing the Aro Tradition, and also in the broader context of Buddhist Vajrayana in general.
