with Sera Lachi Monks
Tuesday, May 13
7:00pm – 9:00pm
Five monks from Sera Lachi (the combined monasteries of Sera Me and Sera Je in India) are on a World Peace Tour in the United States, performing prayers and rituals to benefit all living beings. They are currently in the area and have kindly agreed to perform a Chittamani Tara Puja at our center.
The Geshes will perform the puja in Tibetan. Join us at this auspicious event and share in the positive energy created.
Please consider making a donation to help cover the expenses in connection with this event.
This is the Four-Mandala Ritual to Chittamani Tara. In this practice we request Tara's assistance for swift attainments and success along the path. This is also a very expedient practice for accumulating extensive merit in a short time, and also has the ability to prevent natural calamities, clear obstacles, dispel external negative forces, overcome sicknesses and purify negative karma swiftly.
Tara (the Liberator) is a Buddha in female form who represents in particular all enlightened beings’ skillful activities. Contemplating Tara brings quick results in whatever we want and need – the ultimate happiness of enlightenment, (known as the Mother of all Buddhas, she awakens and helps fulfill our potential to attain enlightenment); and also helps bring temporal benefits of this life relating to work, business, family, relationships etc. Through Tara practice, you can obtain any happiness in this life that you wish.
