This spring, Gen Kelsang Kunden will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give a commentary on the twenty-one homages – or special verses of praise – that we recite when we engage in Liberation from Sorrow prayers.
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 attainemnt of all the stages of the path to enlightenment.
By relying on Mother Tara and requesting her help, we frequently recite twenty-one special verses of praise, or homages. These precious words are Buddha’s own speech and are considered to be actual Sutra.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Please register in advance.
