Zoom – White Tara puja
To welcome the new year, the group will practice White Tara, the Wish-Fulfilling Wheel, using the sadhana text written by Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche.
Tara is a female Bodhisattva. Her Tibetan name, Jetsunma Pakma Drolma, means Exalted Female Liberator. She bestows health and long life and freedom from fear. She represents both an enlightened being and our own enlightened essence and potential.
Our precious guru Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche said that Tara is ultimately the nature of the dharmadhatu itself, with no single appearance and no single color, but because she is active in the realms and experiences of sentient beings, she is perceived in different ways. Twenty-one Taras are described in the Buddha’s original teachings; in the White Tara form, she is known as the Wish-Fulfilling Wheel.
