Arya Tara is a female Buddha who is a manifestation of the wind element of all the Buddhas. Since the wind element is the nature of movement Arya Tara is very swift in helping and protecting us. “Tara” means rescuer; If we rely on Tara with strong faith she will care for us throughout this life and all our future lives.
This empowerment is an opportunity to make a strong connection with Arya Tara and receive her powerful blessings.
The teacher granting this Empowerment is Gen Kelsang Chokyong – Chokyong has been the resident teacher at Odiyana Kadampa Meditation Centre since 2001. He teaches with great humility and humour. He presents Buddha’s teachings in a practical and down to earth manner, making them accessible to everyone.
The Empowerment starts promptly at 10am (so please arrive by 9.50am) and runs until about 5pm. The cost is £25 per person which includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day.
