REGISTRATION: Onsite registration will open at the end of December.

The practice of Guru Yoga is based on Vajrayana practices unique to the Tibetan Buddhism. For those who have a sound foundation of Mahayana Buddhism, the practice of Vajrayana is said to be the fastest and most powerfulpath to Buddhahood.

Venerable Robina will give teachings on the practices of guru yoga in general and further guides us on the practice of Green Tara. Tara, whose name means “star” or “she who ferries across.” Tara is a bodhisattva of compassion who manifests in female form. In Tibetan, Tara is known as “Drolma” or “She Who Saves.” In particular, Green Tara represents compassion in action, since she’s in the process of stepping from her lotus throne in order to help sentient beings. With the practice of Green Tara, we will learn the meditative process of visualization and how the practice of guru yoga transforms the mind.

The teachings will be streamed live on YouTube for those who can’t join us at the center. Onsite attendance is limited to 20 persons.
