Moon Cycle Mantra: Protecting Practices of the 21 Taras for the Waxing Moon
As the moon waxes, we cultivate love and compassion so that we may strengthen our resolve to bring lasting benefit to sentient beings by leading them to enlightenment. On this Thursday we will connect with all the various forms of Tara. We will work with the power of mantra and Tara in various sadhanas. Tara is the mother of all the Buddhas and in her various forms we can connect with protecting and healing powers. She is the swiftest to come when there are problems and we need help, much like a mother runs to their crying child without any hesitation.
We will connect with all of the 21 Taras and the healing power of White Tara. For the most part we will be working with Rinpoche’s Sadhana a Daily Practice for the 21 Taras but may occasionally also work with the Sadhanas connected to Marici or the Tsok of Cittamani Tara.
Who can join?
This practice is open to all who wishes to join, there are no prerequisites. Please come in-person to the temple or join us online.
Text in the temple will be provided for you to work with. For those at home the text will be shared via powerpoint slides in the presentation so you can chant along. If you would like to have a copy of the text to work with you can take any of the 21 Tara Empowrment Rinpoche gives or at least take the course on the 21 Taras. https://learn.dzokden.org/courses/21-tara-retreat
