About the event
This is a day of practice instructions in the text of Green Tara, which is practiced at Kagyu Samye Dzong London. If understood properly,
Green Tara practice helps us overcome inner and outer obstacles, and especially the obstacles of our own fears and self-doubt. Tara is called the Mother of all the Buddhas, as she represents the wisdom that gives birth to enlightenment, the ultimate realisation of a Buddha.
In the tales associated with Tara it is said that Green Tara and White Tara sprang from two of Chenrezig's tears to help the bodhisattva of
infinite compassion in his task of swiftly liberating all sentient beings from suffering. Thus when our practice of compassion can be coupled and sustained with that of swift, fearless and wise activity, it can produce powerful results.
During this day of instructions, Lama Zangmo will explain the meaning and visualisations that accompany the practice. In order to receive these instructions participants should at least have taken Refuge or be intending to do so at the next opportunity.
**Taking Refuge means formally becoming a Buddhist by taking Refuge in the three jewels (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha.) If you are unsure whether you wish to take Refuge, it would be better not to join this course. You are instead welcome to attend the general courses on Buddhism and meditation.
Please bring the Green Tara sadhana text (available from the KSDL shop).
The £5 is a non refundable registration fee, not a payment for the course. There is no charge for our courses and teachings, but donations to help cover the costs of running the centre are very welcome.
