About This Event

ANNUAL TARA RETREAT, ALIBAUG
May 24th, 2019 - May 26th, 2019

Annual Tara Retreat with Geshe Lobsang Tenzin and Venerable Thardoe and pilgrimage.

Tara is known as the Liberator of all difficulties as she possesses all the wisdom knowledge & compassion of an enlightened being.

Meditating on 21 Taras is a very powerful way to identify and connect with our own inner potential for wisdom and compassion. It also helps to eliminate obstacles to the spiritual path and to being able to work for others.

How do we understand and practice 21 Taras (the bodhisattva of compassion), from an outer, inner, and secret perspective? How do we accumulate merit and purify and transform our mind with the practice of 21 Taras? This retreat will explore this topic in depth.

It is said that after noticing the suffering instilled by their fears and unfulfilled wishes, Green Tara’s ultimate prayer was to become enlightened as a Tara of liberation so that she could free all beings from this suffering. In her own life and through her infinite compassion and effort, Green Tara achieved enlightenment, creating a field of merit to benefit sentient beings so they too could receive such blessings. Just by hearing her name, remembering her through supplication, or following her example, we can be liberated from suffering. However, to receive the blessings and to fulfill our wishes, we need to accumulate positive karma and purify negative karma with understanding, practice of prayers, and spiritual activities.

During the retreat we will practice Tara Sadhana which includes:
•Praises with prostrations to the 21 Taras with commentary describing the meaning, color and aspect of each of the 21 Taras before we prostrate to them.
•Practice of visualisation, mantra recitation and aspirational prayers.
•Meditations

We hope that with the teaching and guidance of Geshe Lobsang Tenzin our Tara practice will be accomplished with greater wisdom.

Anyone interested in this practice is invited to join and register for this weekend retreat.

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
