Transmission from teacher to student is one of the cornerstones of Tibetan Buddhism, maintaining a direct, unbroken Dharma lineage from the time of the Buddha. The blessings of the lineage masters are passed along to the student with the authorization to engage in the practice, creating the auspicious interdependence necessary for authentic accomplishments to ripen. As such, to receive any kind of transmission from an authorized lineage holder should be treated as a very special and sacred occurrence. In ancient times, notice of such events would be shared discreetly through secret language about traversing the paths. Today, we are blessed with the ability to benefit countless beings through the interconnectivity of the “cyberdhatu”. We ask that only those with a sincere interest in studying and engaging in the practice of the above teachings attend the transmission in order to maintain continuity and respect for the lineage.
Teachings & Practice
Once you receive transmission, you will be authorized to access explanatory teachings (Tri) on these practices and to do them on your own. Tara Mandala Online currently offers cutting-edge online programs to guide students in detail through each of the three practices.
For personal guidance in your area, you can contact a local Tara Mandala Satellite Sangha. Tara Mandala also holds retreats on our 700-acre land. For a deeper connection to the lineage and in person retreat opportunities, please be sure to check out Tara Mandala Retreat Center’s schedule for our our onsite offerings.
There is no charge for this transmission event. You will have an opportunity to make a DONATION to Tara Mandala Online Programs to cover operating and administrative costs, and to offer dana directly to Lama Tsultrim. Both of these donations are optional, and NO ONE will be turned away for lack of funds.
