green tara retreat

2 Day Immersive Retreat | July 13 – 14, 2024

About the Retreat

Arya Tara, the embodiment of awakened activity of the Buddha’s enlightened mind – compassion, wisdom, and love – in a female form, who acts swiftly to answer our requests both spiritual and worldly. 

Protector and Liberator, Arya Tara frees beings from fear, saves them from dangerous situations, and removes obstacles.

This retreat follows a Sadhana based on the Guru Yoga of Cittamani Tara written by Lama Yeshe and Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche.

During the retreat, we will do four sessions per day of the Tara Sadhana. The sadhana (or method of accomplishment) consists of taking refuge, generating bodhicitta, and making requests to the Green Tara lineage lamas to receive inspiration. Although accumulating mantra is not the main focus of the retreat, for those who are able, we will try to accumulate 10,000 mantras.

At the end of the retreat, we will offer extensive dedication for the long lives of our teachers and for world peace. It is possible that the retreat will include an all night Tara Puja on the last night, this will be confirmed during the retreat.
