EMBODYING TARA : 21 Taras for the 21 Century

In this retreat, Lopön Chandra will reveal the second seven of the 21 aspects of Tara, the female Buddha of Compassion. A Bodhisattva, a Buddha, a Mother Goddess, and a Tantric Deity, Tara may be translated as “Star” but she is more commonly known as ‘The Saviouress.” Eventually there came to be twenty-one aspects of Tara as found in the Praises to the 21 Taras Tantra.

Tara teaches us to befriend our fears and embody the wisdom that is within each of us.

This intensive is primarily intended for those who have learned the Chöd of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and would like to review and refine the practice, including the melodies, drum/bell rhythms, and visualizations. However, the intensive is also open to those who have not yet learned the Chöd of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche Chöd and who would like to receive the healing blessings of the practice and to see if this practice is something you would like to learn in the future. You will join us in singing the beautiful ancient melodies and then be able to experience the practice as a healing experience.

Mind Training for Modern Times

with Lopön Chandra

At the heart of all practices of Tibetan Buddhism, Mind Training (Lojong) puts special emphasis on transforming all hardships and happiness into the path of awakening, meaning that all of life’s joys and sorrows can be fuel for the ultimate journey home. Mind Training consists of inspiring pithy slogans that help us dive deeply and intimately into our own capacity to develop wisdom and compassion in our lives. Mind Training encourages us to move away from self-centeredness and towards developing bodhicitta, the heart-felt aspiration that all beings be happy and free of suffering.
