Welcome to the Lama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Community

 Visit the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives - photo by Merry ColonyLama Yeshe Ling Tibetan Buddhist Group is an open-hearted community that empowers people to discover and develop their inherent potential for compassion, wisdom and inner peace. Here you can get in touch with what is happening in our community, meet friends, learn about Buddhist Philosophy, and most importantly discover methods that may help you to overcome suffering, develop compassion and gain insight. We meet in Burlington, Hamilton, Toronto, and Kitchener/Waterloo.

Lama Yeshe Ling is affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition ('FPMT'), which is based on the Gelugpa tradition of Lama Tsongkhapa of Tibet as taught by Founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe, and Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche. 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 The Liberator

Sunday, April 22

Tara the Liberator, liberating us from samsara. Tara, the feminine aspect of the Buddha.  The Four Mandala Offerings to Cittamani Tara is a great way to clear away obstacles to work, relationships, and disharmony in your life.
 
“There are so many inner obstacles to the development of your mind, and these inner obstacles create many outer obstacles. Therefore, for the success of your Dharma practice, of your actualizing the graduated path to enlightenment, you must rely upon a special deity, or Buddha, such as Tara.”- Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche; Kopan Monastery, May 1987
