Jan 10 - 17: Jan 10 evening through Jan 17 noon

Tara is the embodiment of the holy actions of the Buddhas. By practicing Tara meditation you can eliminate inner and outer obstacles to the development of your mind, create much merit, and achieve quick success in attaining enlightenment.

Venerable Robina will lead this week long retreat on the meditation practice of Green Tara, combined with teachings on the stages of the path to enlightenment. See a sample of Ven. Robina’s teaching style on YouTube.
