Jowo Atisha DipamkaraThe genre of teachings known as the Stages of the Path (Tibetan: Lam-Rim) represents a synthesis of the entire path to enlightenment. Based on Atisha's Lamp of the Path to Enlightenment, they present the essence of all the Buddha's teachings in a clear and concise way, easy to understand and apply in meditation. The beauty of studying the lam-rim is that whenever you hear a teaching anything Buddhist, you know where it fits into the whole path. So, in that way, you can say that everything the Buddha taught is in the lam-rim.

Tara Puja - with Geshe Ngawang Tharchin

Event Date: 
November 7, 2015 - 11:00am - 1:00pm

Join us, with Geshe Ngawang Tharchin, for a group meditation practice of Tara.  You are welcome to bring offerings: a wholesome snack or flowers, and something for a shared lunch afterwards.
 
Tara the Liberator, liberating us from samsara. Tara, the feminine aspect of the Buddha.  The Four Mandala Offerings to Cittamani Tara is a great way to clear away obstacles to work, relationships, and disharmony in your life. 
 
“There are so many inner obstacles to the development of your mind, and these inner obstacles create many outer obstacles. Therefore, for the success of your Dharma practice, of your actualizing the graduated path to enlightenment, you must rely upon a special deity, or Buddha, such as Tara.”
- Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche; Kopan Monastery, May 1987
