GREEN TARA MEDITATION
Friday April 17, 7:00-8:00 pm
Green Tara is a feminine emanation of enlightened compassion whose activity of fearless wisdom alleviates fear and obstacles. Identifying with Green Tara's extraordinary qualities of transcendent wisdom, omniscient awareness, fearlessness, and love and compassion allows our own aspects of these innate qualities to arise
GURU YOGA TSOK
Saturday April 18, 7:00-8:00 pm
The Tsok offering puja is a ceremony that involves making offerings of food and drink to the Buddha, the Bodhisattvas and our spiritual Gurus in conjunction with prayers, chanting, and meditation. The ceremony is an excellent method of accumulating merit, purifying negativity, and giving and receiving blessings. The Tsok offering is important for renewing commitments and averting obstacles. It is a special method through which we come under the care and guidance of the Dakas and Dakinis who bestow completion stage realizations.
