Green Tara Teaching with Lama Lodro

Please join us at KTCJax in May!

We are delighted to host Lama Lodro Lhamo in May, while she teaches the practice of Green Tara, the female Buddha of Enlightened activity.

(from Namse Bangdzo)Green Tara is a gentle female embodiment of universal compassion. She represents the virtuous, enlightened, and miraculous activity of all Buddhas. She reaches out her hand in the gesture of granting protection, freeing one from fear, obstacles, and difficulties. With her right foot stepping forward, she is alert, determined, and ready to actively help all who call upon her.

Green Tara is known as the ‘Swift One’ or the ‘Swift Liberator’ due to her immediate response to those who request her aid. Green Tara’s compassion for the welfare of all living beings is said to be even stronger than a mother’s love for her children. She is the one who helps us cross over the ocean of suffering and guides us upon the path of enlightenment.

Lama Lodro will teach on the Green Tara text, ritual, chanting, music, and lead practice sessions. It’s wonderful to have this precious opportunity learn this powerful practice, as we are doing Tara puja once a month at the center again!
