Join us on July 25-26 for a Green Tara Retreat, including initiation to Green Tara, Sadhana meditation instruction and guided practice with Khenpo Migmar. Khenpo Migmar will incorporate teaching of heart sutra from his book “Wisdom gone Beyond” into the Green Tara Sadhana practice during the two day retreat. Open to all, sadhana will be given.
Tara is the manifestation of the compassion of all the Buddhas. She carries out and accomplishes the enlightened activities of the Buddhas. The practice of Green Tara helps to overcome fear & anxiety and eliminates suffering of all kinds. Green Tara is a well known practice to fulfill one’s wishes, and ultimately to awaken the wisdom within oneself.
