Green Tara Practice with Venerable Losang Samten
Saturday February 26
6 p.m. Eastern Time
via Zoom

Hosted by Chenrezig Tibetan Buddhist Cultural Center
in El Paso, TX

The goddess Tara is perhaps the most universally cherished archetype of Tibetan Buddhism, a figure so beloved that she is called “Mother Tara” by her devotees. Also known as “the mother of all buddhas,” she is the embodiment of fully awakened wisdom and compassion who lovingly shepherds sentient beings from the endless suffering of samsara all the way to enlightenment.

Please join CTBCC for this online practice with our beloved spiritual director Venerable Losang Samten.
