Online Meditation,Tara Practice and Q&A

Venerable Amy Miller

May 11, 2020


4:30pm – 5:30pm, Mondays (May 4 & 11)

What is it:

An opportunity to come together to connect, settle into space with others and yourself while deepening your connection with Tara the Liberator, the female Buddha who is so beloved to many Tibetan Buddhist practitioners.
Ven. Amy has kindly agreed to lead us in this time together via zoom 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 times.  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.”
