Friday, January 1st, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
When asked recently how we can best help the world at this time, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche advised us to pray to Arya Tara, our Blessed Mother.
When we are young, we turn to our worldly mother for help. She protects us from immediate dangers, provides us with all our temporal needs, and guides and encourages us in our learning and personal development. In the same way, during our spiritual growth, we need to turn to our Holy Mother, Tara, for refuge. She protects us from all internal and external dangers, she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and she guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path.”
–Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang will give a short introduction to Tara. We will then recite her beautiful chanted prayer, ‘Liberation from Sorrow’, requesting her to bestow her blessings on all living beings so that all sickness and other obstacles are quickly removed.
This event is taught by Gen Dorje. Gen Dorje has been studying and practicing Buddhism for over 20 years under the guidance of his teacher Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, the founder of the New Kadampa Tradition. Gen Dorje is admired for his warmth and humor in making Buddha’s teachings relevant to the modern world. He is an inspiring example of how to integrate Buddha’s teachings into a joyful life.
