ABOUT THIS PRACTICE
Because of her swift compassionate activity, practitioners throughout time have relied on Arya Tara to help them overcome both inner and outer obstacles, and to attain the ultimate goal of enlightenment as well as temporal aims.
White Tara is one of the three long-life deities. This is a short visualization and mantra recitation practice composed by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. We will be dedicating all the recitations of the White Tara mantra to Lama Zopa Rinpoche to live long and continue to spread the Dharma. You may add your mantra count to the comment section on Facebook Live to be counted towards the total number which will be shared with Ven. Roger and eventually offered to Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
