11:00 am - 12:30 pm

dprtaraquotePlease note the time change: practice starts at 11 AM

Tara sadhana practice is a beautiful and profound vajrayana deity yoga liturgy with a long history in Tibetan Buddhism. The practice of Green Tara can help overcome fear and anxiety, enabling one to open up to one’s own heart of compassion. The practice consists of visualizations, songs, and prayers, composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Although this is a vajrayana practice, group practice is open to all. There are no prerequisites. It is a uniquely powerful opportunity to participate in this profound form of practice.

For questions about the practice, please e-mail Susan or Barbara.

“Tara practice [and] deity practice is not about hope and fear, it is about enlightenment.  Not about pleasing someone out there, it is about freeing our mind.” — Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche

“Attaining enlightenment is not that difficult.  What we need to do is purify our mind. Through purifying our mind we purify our world, we purify our enjoyment and our activity. Through Tara Practice we can connect with the original true nature of our mind” — Acharya Lama Tenpa Gyaltsen
