Philosophy in Action: Tara & Stages of the Path with Venerable Robina

 Registration is closed for this event
Tara is a feminine embodiment of the compassionate action of all the Buddhas. The Stages of the Path to Buddhahood, presents Buddha's teachings in a practical order, showing us how to start, how to progress, and how to complete the spiritual path. Tara meditation practice done with the Stages of the Path invokes the compassionate activity of all the Buddhas, and causes our own potential for goodness and clarity to manifest quickly. The Wednesday night talk will provide a spiritual and philosophical foundation for entering this path and finding peace and meaning in our lives.
