Have you ever wanted to deepen your practice with the 21 Taras? Connect with Tara’s energy and enable real transformation in your life.
Over the coming weeks, we will be introducing to our community each of the 21 Taras. We begin today with the first three. In getting to know the Taras, and practicing her mantra and visualization, we are able to work with an energetic stream from Tara that resonates with real-life situations. In our upcoming “Queen of Great Bliss Dakini & Twenty-One Taras Equinox Retreat” with Drubpön Lama Karma on March 17 – 24, we invoke the primordial wisdom aspects of each of the 21 Taras.
Tara Mandala’s 21 Tara statues have supported many global practices restoring balance in the world. Last year, our community practiced the 12th Tara, Tashi Dönjé – “the climate change Tara,” to heal the disasters of hurricanes in Texas, Florida and South America, and the wildfires in California. In previous years, practices with the 7th, 8th and 20th Tara were directed toward the war in Syria, positive and sane decisions in government, and the ebola epidemic. The power of community practice and the activation of Tara’s healing energies are a tremendous support for all during times of degeneration.
“Tara is the popular female form of the Buddha: nothing is below her station, she will help in even the most mundane matters … Where the Buddha seems too removed and sublime, the maternal compassion of Tara can be invoked.” ~ Lama Tsultrim Allione, from her book Women Of Wisdom.
Please check our website every Tuesday for the introduction of three new Taras. We will also make announcements every Tuesday on our social-media channels. Read more info about the retreat and teacher below.
See you at our retreat in March!
~ With Blessings, Tara Mandala
About The Retreat
With Drubpön Lama Karma
March 17 – 24, 2018
The retreat will begin with an empowerment of the Queen of Great Bliss Yeshe Tsogyal Wisdom Dakini from the Longchen Nyingthig Dzogchen treasure cycle revealed by Jigme Lingpa (1729-1798). In this practice we cultivate the ultimate primordial wisdom dakini of the universe from the perspectives of the practices of maha, anu, and ati yoga, which focus on the outer appearance of the deity, inner subtle energy and essences, and secret nature of the mind.
