Tralam-mé is the manner in which people accidentally rhyme with each other

Aro Encyclopaedia

Tralam-mé in ordinary terms pertains to anything that happens in the sky – weather conditions, precipitation, rainbows, the Aurora Borealis, asteroids, meteor showers, seeing the stars in the sky, the moon in the sky, visions in the sky, whatever happens in the sky.
In terms of Dzogchen long-dé tralam-mé is used in the context of vajra romance – and thus we translate the term as poetic turbulence. Poetic turbulence is the romantic energetic which is sparked by the capacity for realisation in two individuals.
Tralam-mé does not exist simply as an interface between male-female romantic couples; it exists between everyone and everything everywhere.
Tralam-mé affects how people relate with each other.  We call it poetic turbulence as an emptiness and form coinage.  Tralam-mé is the manner in which people accidentally rhyme with each other – the manner in which they fall in love.
Tralam-mé allows you to experience the non-dual sparkling through in respect of your partner.
