Saturday 8 May
10am – 1pm
with Resident Teacher Gen Kelsang Kunden
live-streamed (available for 72 hours after course end for registered attendees)
When we are young we turn to our world mother for help. She protects us from immediate dangers, provides us with all our temporal needs, and guides and encourages us in our learning and personal development. In the same way, during our spiritual growth, we need to turn to our Holy Mother, Tara, for refuge. She protects us from all internal and external dangers, she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and she guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path.
In this Saturday morning in May, on the day of the month dedicated to Arya Tara, our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Kunden, will give a teaching on the qualities of Tara and how we can rely on her in the first session. The second session after the break, we will engage in Liberation from Sorrow prayers which include praises to the twenty-one manifestations of Tara. Because these are Sutra, the actual words of Buddha, they are particularly powerful and blessed. This Tara practice also includes mantra recitation.
Suitable for beginners. Everyone welcome.
