US Festival - The Illusory Play of the Mind


In this Festival, Gen-la Khyenrab will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Arya Green Tara.

Enlightened Mother Arya Tara, manifestation of the swift, wind element, of all the Buddhas, is greatly delighted with those who sincerely practice Kadam Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment. She promised Atisha, the Founder of Kadam Lamrim, to give her special care, protection and blessings to his followers throughout their life, and in life after life.

Gen-la Khyenrab will further explain how we can recognize all conventional appearances as the magical, or illusory, play of the mind and how we can stop grasping strongly at their apparent differences through recognizing everything as a manifestation of emptiness, the actual nature of all things.

Receive the blessing empowerment of Arya Green Tara and teachings with Gen-la Khyenrab.

Known as "the Mother of the Conquerors", Tara is a female Buddha, who is a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas.
