White Tara Practice Session - Sunday, April 5, 2020


at the following times: 10:00am Pacific / 11:00am Mountain / 12:00pm Central / 1:00pm Eastern / 2:00pm Atlantic / 18:00 UK / 19:00 Central Europe


In the face of the worldwide pandemic of COVID19, please join us for the healing, soothing practice of White Tara. Emanated from the tear s of the compassionate Avalokiteshvara, peaceful White Tara is said to witness the suffering of beings through her seven eyes, and she soothes their fear, calms their anguish, heals their suffering, restores their health—both individual and communal—and extends their lives. This is a lineage practice particularly relied upon in times of domestic and community turmoil and disharmony, or in the midst of attacks on health and longevity.  

 

We will do the short daily practice of White Tara composed by the Sakyong. This practice is open to any practitioner who has taken refuge in a Buddhist lineage. The lung will be provided at the beginning of the session, and the text will be made visible on the site for those new to White Tara practice.

 

Prerequisite: Group practice is open to all. To practice on your own, or to purchase the text, you need to have received the lung (reading transmission) and have taken the Refuge Vow.
