December 9-22, 2013 N/A
Green Tara Retreat
with the Sravasti Abbey community
The female deity Green Tara, a manifestation of the Buddha's enlightened activities, is one of the most loved Buddhas of the Tibetan tradition. With her extraordinary beauty, compassion, and wisdom, she is a demonstration of what each of us can become, showing us the good qualities to cultivate on the path to enlightenment as well as obstacles to abandon.
Meditating on Green Tara helps to overcome negative emotions, dispel all fears, and develop strong feelings of joy and happiness. Join the Sravasti Abbey community to meditate on Green Tara and reflect on antidotes to the 8 Dangers, eight chief mental afflictions that impede our own realization of Tara's enlightened qualities.
Retreatants should arrive by 5:00 p.m. on Monday and stay through lunch on Sunday the 22nd.
