Tara is a female Buddha, the beautiful embodiment of fearless enlightened wisdom. Tara means ‘liberator’ in that she liberates all beings from all fear and suffering. The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a deep connection with Tara’s enlightened mind. Through receiving her powerful blessings we can swiftly actualize our own potential for fearless wisdom and compassionate action.
Gen Choma will further explain how we can recognize all conventional appearances as the magical 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. Hence we will experience the joy of the yoga of non-duality and abide in peace and harmony.
