Tara is a female Buddha, whose great wisdom can lead us to freedom from all fears. She is a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all enlightened beings — a universal mother whose compassion is all-embracing. And, since she is the embodiment of the completely purified wind element, she is well known for her very swift compassionate action.
Please join us for this blessing empowerment of Buddha Tara — a beautiful guided meditation through which we’ll receive a transmission of inspiration and insight from this enlightened mother-protector.
With her guidance and example, we ourselves can transcend all fear and awaken to our highest potential. We can become an enlightened protector who brings wisdom and compassion to heal our suffering world.
“Homage to Tara, the Swift One, the Heroine,
Whose eyes are like a flash of lightning,
Who arose from the opening of a lotus,
Born from the tears of the Protector of the Three Worlds.”
— Buddha Shakyamuni, describing Buddha Tara, from the practice called Liberation from Sorrow
