For the occasion of the new Tibetan year Khenpo Tashi confers the initiation of White Tara.

Known as a female deity who responds quickly and effectively to any heartfelt request, White Tara is particularly associated with healing, protecting, and stabilizing our life force. Her practice is especially effective and helpful during difficult times and when our lives are dominated by intense emotions and fear. Practiced by all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, White Tara has been the main deity practice of many well-known Buddhist scholars and siddhas in both India and Tibet. White Tara’s special function is to promote long life, peace, prosperity, and health through her enlightened activities, both for the practitioner and for others.

On Saturday 24.2. afternoon we celebrate CHOTRUL DÜCHEN, one of the four great buddhist celebrations: The first fifteen days of the Tibetan year commemorate the event when Lord Buddha performed a different miracle each day to instill devotion and increase merit among heretics.  Program:Introduction to Chotrul DüchenSutra of Remembering the Three JewelsThe Three-Part Sutra: Confession before the thirty-five BuddhasBuddha Shakyamuni prayer16 Arhat-ritualLonglife-prayers for Their Holinesses The texts can be downloaded HERE
