The FPMT creates opportunities to listen, reflect, meditate, practice and actualize the unmistaken teachings of the Buddha and based on that experience spreading the Dharma to sentient beings. Lama Zopa Rinpoche and the FPMT is dedicated to fulfilling the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, understanding this to be the quickest and most vast way of benefiting sentient beings.

Tara - Dusk to Dawn

Come for as many sessions as you would like, or stay till dawn!

Date: Saturday, June 30th

This is special all-night practice similar to the regular Tara puja, but with additional practices. This joyful and invigorating practice helps avert negativity and suffering, and promotes inner peace, and family, community, and world peace - with surprising effectiveness. Tara, the mother of all the Buddhas, is a manifestation of compassionate enlightened activity of all Buddhas. She is particularly helpful in emergencies and difficult situations. We offer this all-night practice for the benefit of our local community, the environment, for sucess in all our projects, and for universal peace.
