Tara Mandala is a vibrant international Buddhist Community centered at Tara Mandala Retreat Center in the mountains of Pagosa Springs, Colorado. The organization is guided by Lama Tsultrim Allione and her sublime Tibetan teachers to foster the development of innate wisdom for the benefit of all beings.
Tara Mandala is focused on the lineage of Machig Labdrön, the 11th Century Tibetan yogini and originator of the Chöd practice. Tara Mandala offers a complete path to ultimate realization, comprised of study, practice and deep retreat. Programs include groups retreats, web based teachings opportunities for solitary retreat.
“Lama Tusltrim Allione has had a great devotion toward the teachings of Chöd for a long time. She has been doing a lot of work to preserve and maintain the continuity of the teachings and practice of Chod and she has a very pure heart motivation in doing this, which I deeply rejoice in”
- His Holiness the 17th Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley, Dorje
