Enter the Mandala of Green Tara, the female buddha of compassion, who swiftly provides protection from fear and suffering. Green Tara is accessible even to those who have not received the initiation of Tara, she is simply present to all those who call upon her. She sits with one foot in the meditative posture and one foot in the world, thus embodying active compassion that serves as a model for our modern contemplative life style.
This profound and concise Green Tara practice comes from the Ösel Dorje Sangdzod (Secret Treasury of Vajra Luminosity), a terma cycle revealed by Adzom Drukpa Drodul Pawo Dorje (1842-1924) that has been transmitted in an unbroken dharma lineage from Adzom Rinpoche to Tulku Ösel Dorje.
In this retreat you will learn how perform deity visualization, mantra recitation, mudras, musical offering and feast offerings. Taken together these form the essential activities for all tantric developmental stage practices. This retreat will be a great opportunity for new and old students alike to deepen their understanding and knowledge of the Green Tara practice.
