Ven. Amy will offer three practice sessions on Tara the Liberator, the female Buddha who is so beloved to many Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. We invite you to come together to connect, settle into space with others and yourself, and deepen your connection with Mother Tara.
Ven. Amy has kindly agreed to lead Land of Medicine Buddha and our sister FPMT center, Vajrapani Insititute, in this time together which will include:
  • Time to arrive and connect
  • Setting a motivation
  • A grounding, calming meditation
  • The Tara Practice and mantras
  • Space for Q&A at the end
His Holiness the Dalai Lama has particularly recommended this practice for our current time.  And Lama Zopa Rinpoche shares, “… For the success of your Dharma practice, of your actualizing the graduated path to enlightenment, you must rely upon a special deity, or Buddha, such as Tara. All the actions of the Buddhas have manifested in this female aspect of Buddha, Tara the Liberator, in order to help living beings to accomplish successfully both temporal and ultimate happiness.”
