Cittamani Tara Empowerment by Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa

Cittamani Tara, is a highest yoga tantra form of Tara, seen as an embodiment of active compassion and promises assistance when called upon. Tara the liberator removes obstacles and empowers us to reach enlightenment within this very body, this very life. The practice of Cittamani Tara, the heart jewel or wish fulfilling jewel, is a body mandala that focuses on the winds, channels and drops of the divine body.

“Tara can solve many problems in your life: she can liberate you from untimely death; help you recover from disease; bring you success in business; help you find a job; and bring you wealth. When you have a really serious problem, such as a life-threatening disease, if you rely on Tara, commonly you will be freed from that problem, or you will recover from that disease… These are common experiences… Tara’s meditation practice is quick to grant success in obtaining the ultimate happiness of enlightenment.” Lama Zopa Rinpoche (Kopan 1987)

 

Commitment: Minimum daily practice of short Cittamani Tara Guru Yoga and 1 mala of mantras daily for life


 

Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa

As one of the last generation of Tibetan Buddhist scholars to begin their educational careers in Tibet prior to the Chinese invasion, Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa has played an instrumental role in the reestablishment and preservation of Tibetan Buddhist traditions in exile, and in the spread of Tibetan Buddhism to the Western world.

Born in Tibet in 1934, Rinpoche was ordained as a monk at the age of seven. He entered Sera Jey monastery at seventeen and obtained his Geshe Lharampa degree in 1979. Following this, he entered Gyume Tantric University and two years later became Master of Discipline. In 1985 His Holiness the Dalai Lama appointed him abbot of GyumeTantric Monastery, a position he held for 6 years. Since then he has taught extensively in India and the West. In 2010 he was appointed to the position of Jangtse Choje, which places him second in line for the position of Ganden throne holder(Ganden Tripa), who is the head of the Gelug tradition.
