Tara Retreat: Finding the Tara Within with Gyalwa Dokhampa

Gyalwa Dokhampa

 

Embark on a transformative journey with Gyalwa Dokhampa Jigme Pema Nyinjadh, as he illuminates the path of integrating ancient Buddhist wisdom into our modern lives.

Join us in honoring Green Tara, the wish-fulfilling, the embodiment of boundless love and compassion, revered as the nurturing mother of all Buddhas. Discover how meditating on Green Tara can awaken our own innate Buddha nature, bringing relief from suffering and fostering a deep connection with her profound wisdom.

Throughout this retreat, delve into the outer, inner, and secret aspects of Green Tara’s practice, guided by the insightful teachings of Gyalwa Dokhampa. Learn the art of visualization, meditation, and practical application of Buddhist dharma to enrich your daily life.

Join us on this transformative journey of self-discovery and empowerment with Green Tara. Open your heart and mind to her profound blessings, and let her light guide you towards inner peace and fulfillment.

Note: As you immerse yourself in this sacred practice, bring offerings symbolizing your devotion: flowers for inner and outer beauty, fruits for abundance, and milk for vitality. Please note, to fully engage in Green Tara practice, refrain from alcohol, nicotine, meat, and eggs during the retreat, ensuring a pure and focused experience.
