Through receiving Buddha Green Tara’s blessings we can make a powerful connection with her and thus be guided along the paths of wisdom and compassion.
The enlightened mind is said to be like a boundless deep ocean, every drop of which has the power to bring inner peace to living beings. Receiving an empowerment is like connecting with this ocean-like potential inside our own mind, giving us the courage and wisdom to begin to realize our own Buddha-nature. In this empowerment, we will have the opportunity to make a lasting and deeply meaningful connection with Arya Tara.
Arya Tara is a female Buddha, whose great wisdom can lead us to freedom from all fears. She is a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all enlightened beings — a universal mother whose compassion is all-embracing. Since she is the embodiment of the completely purified wind element, she is well known for her very swift compassionate action. During these unstable times we all need a source of refuge. If we rely upon Tara, whose name means ‘liberator’, she will liberate us from our fear and suffering.
Enjoy the company of like-minded people, and empower your spiritual life at this special weekend event.
