Language: Tibetan

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 compassion of all enlightened beings.

We will be 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 and all our Holy Gurus. It is said to be especially beneficial to sponsor or to engage in spiritual practices during the Fifteen Days of Miracles

  • Venerable Samten recites the puja in Tibetan. You can follow along in the prayer book, FPMT Essential Buddhist Prayers, Volume 2, or may obtain a pdf of the Practice (by donation of your choice) from the FPMT at this link.

Dedications for You and Your Loved Ones:

If you would like to request that you or a loved one receives dedications of the merit at the end of the Puja –  or if you would like to donate towards general sponsorship of this Puja please go to:

The Benefits of Tara Practice

by Lama Zopa Rinpoche (Kopan 1987)

“… 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…”
