Dispel Fear Through Loving-Kindness:Add Your Prayers & Positive Aspirations 
The Nalandabodhi International sangha announces our fifth annual Tara Drupchen. The Drupchen this year is hosted online with practices at Nalanda West in Seattle, Karmapa Center 16 in Chicago, and many Nalandabodhi centers around the world from September 24 – 27, 2020.You can register to attend and participate in practice sessions online by clicking here.


There will be simultaneous translation during this event into Portuguese, Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German.


In all wisdom traditions, including Buddhism, it is said that the antidote to fear is loving-kindness. In Vajrayana Buddhism, the figure of Tara symbolizes the fearless and compassionate energy of our mind’s true nature and a firm resolve to dispel the suffering and fears of all beings.


This year’s event is hosted online with Nalandabodhi acharyas, lamas, and mitras leading this practice intensive in Seattle and Chicago. Please join us – as we practice together from all around the world.


Our 2020 Tara Drupchen is especially dedicated to overcoming the current pandemic, to all beings suffering directly or indirectly from it, and to dispelling fear in our world.


It is customary to make prayer requests and aspirations during this time. You can make those here. These requests and aspirations link our intentions with Tara to dispel fears, obstacles, sickness, and death. We will share your prayer requests with our Nalandabodhi teachers, sangha members, and practitioners participating in Tara Drupchen.
