Guru Rinpoche and Tara Pujas for the Dalai Lama and Tibet

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has requested all FPMT centers, projects, and services to do specific practices for Tibet, to help His Holiness’ "middle way" wishes to succeed quickly.

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.

Friday, July 6th

His Holiness the Dalai Lama will turn 83 on July 7th (July 6th in India). Everyone is welcome to join us and celebrate with cake, refreshments and the recitation of the mantra of compassion OM MANI PADME HUM. The Dalai Lama is believed to be an emanation of Chenrezig, the personification of the compassion of all Buddhas. We will also recite a long life prayer for his holiness.
