We will be doing Lama Chopa and tsog offering on Thursday, and some Tara Praises.
We will be performing the Chittamani Tara Puja as found in the FPMT Essential Prayer Book, Volume 2. The female Buddha Tara embodies the wisdom and the compassion of all enlightened beings.
We are doing this practice especially for Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche’s long and stable life and the success of all his activities. We also dedicate to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Wednesday is considered a special day for His Holiness the Dalai Lama, as it is his ‘soul day’ – བླ་གཟའ – astrologically. It is common practice for Tibetans to offer a special puja to His Holiness on Wednesdays in Tibet and India.
The Benefits of Tara Practice
by Lama Zopa Rinpoche (Kopan 1987)
“…There are many benefits from reciting the Tara mantra or Praise to the Twenty-One Taras. Tara can solve many problems in your life: she can liberate you from untimely death; help you recover from disease; bring you success in business; help you find a job; and bring you wealth. When you have a really serious problem, such as a life-threatening disease, if you rely on Tara, commonly you will be freed from that problem, or you will recover from that disease… These are common experiences… Tara’s meditation practice is quick to grant success in obtaining the ultimate happiness of enlightenment. You receive much good merit, the cause of happiness. It prevents a suffering rebirth in your next life; you receive initiation from millions of Buddhas; and you achieve enlightenment. Remembering Tara, singing praises, and reciting mantras at any time of the day or night protects you from fear and dangers and fulfills all your wishes. Tara is particularly quick to grant help…”
