Wisdom and Devotion Post Fall Festival Retreat
Drawing Closer to Mother Tara
October 28 – 30
Green Tara is a female enlightened being, the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, who protects living beings from outer and inner obstacles and guides them to the attainment of all the stages of the path to enlightenment.
In relying on Mother Tara and requesting her help, we frequently recite twenty-one special verses of praise, or homage. These precious words are Buddha’s own speech and are considered to be actual Sutra.
At the Fall Festival, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will give an explanation of these special verses based on the transmission she received from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Through understanding the meaning of these verses we will draw closer to the twenty-one emanations of Tara and constantly receive special blessings and protection.
Enjoy a relaxing spiritual holiday at Kadampa Meditation Center Florida in Sarasota, Florida.
This retreat will consist of guided meditations and commentary following on teachings given by Gen-la Dekyong on the 21 Homages at the NKT Fall Festival in New York. Gen-la Dekyong has given these teachings based on the transmission she received from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
