Green Tara Mantra Drop in Sessions for the Environment

January 4 - April 8, 2023

“Every individual should act to save the Earth from climate change.” ~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama

 

His Holiness the Dalai Lama encourages us all to “take action” to help mitigate the climate crisis swiftly. Our immediate action requires a high level of global cooperation and coordination. Guymed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa recently gave blessings for a collective group effort nation-wide of 10 million Tara Mantra recitations with the dedication to mitigate the current climate crisis.

 

As part of this national effort, Vajrapani has committed to lead two sessions of practice each month with the heartfelt wish to remove karmic obstacles for all those trying to resolve the climate crisis.

“We human beings are the only creatures with the power to destroy the earth, but we are also the species with the greatest capacity to protect it. We must confront issues of climate change on a cooperative global level for everyone’s benefit. But we must also do what we can on a personal level”. ~His Holiness the Dalai Lama
