Courageous Compassion – Tara Practice with Acharya Lhakpa

10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This pIMG_7766-e1475764843758-768x1024.jpgractice includes beautiful songs and verses composed by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso  Rinpoche. It is a core practice of the Nalandabodhi community. Arya Tara’s first incarnation was that of a royal princess. During that birth that she gave rise to the enlightened intention to benefit all sentient beings by attaining Buddhahood in the form of a woman. In this way Arya Tara took successive incarnations  while maintaining the way of a female bodhisattva. Tara continually performed enlightened activity for the benefit of sentient beings. In particular, the figure of Tara helps sentient beings with the obstacle of fear. 

Tara is a fully realized Buddha in the female form.

She is not a goddess we worship, but rather a profound reminder of the healing power of lovingkindness and courageous compassion that exists in the hearts of everyone.

We are happy to announce that Nalandabodhi East Coast resident teacher Acharya Lhakpa Tshering will lead us in Tara Practice this Sunday (no experience needed, instruction provided, any level of participation welcome).
