Receiving Arya Tara's Protection
In May 2006, over 2,500 people gathered
Kadampa Meditation Centre in England
for the 12th International Spring Festival of Kadampa Buddhism.
They came to sit at the feet of Venerable
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who granted
the empowerment of Arya Tara and the commentary to the practice of Liberation
Geshe-la started by giving profound teachings on
the union of the two truths and taught how to practice it within
the context of both Sutra and Tantra.
He then bestowed the blessings and protection of Arya Tara and
showed how to rely upon her to achieve both temporary and ultimate
liberation from suffering.
Geshe-la explained how all living beings receive care and protection
from emanations of Arya Tara - every single day.
It was a very special time, during which we formed
an extraordinary friendship with Arya Tara - and learned a lot
about the kindness of the mother!
Thank you, Geshe-la.
