You are invited to join us for an afternoon of singing. "The Twenty-One Praises to Mother Tārā" is a beautiful melody, in English! Our singing will be interspersed with stories & readings on the divine/buddha feminine principle embodied by Lady Tārā & silent contemplation. Saturdays in December: 12/8, 12/15, 12/22 & 12/29 Like the Isis, Durga Devi, Sophia, the Virgin Mary and other goddesses across human cultures, Lady Tārā has an intimate place in the heart of many Buddhists of the Himalayan & Tibetan regions. She is "swift and heroic," "mother of all buddhas," "conquers the most tenacious demons," "removes every nightmare" and "the domain of tranquil nirvana." Event is free. Donations gratefully accepted.

Description:
Over the first 4 Saturday afternoons in 2019, Dr. Lye will present the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of "training the mind" (Tib. lojong) by emphasizing an experiential and contemplative approach to the slogans found in the famous classic known as "Training the Mind in Seven Points." Each Saturday will include heart-instructions, short guided contemplations, and Q&A. Dr. Lye’s approach is very clear, practical, unpretentious & relevant to our context here in the West. He’s able to provide a historical and cultural context to the Buddha’s words that deepens our understanding here in the West. Dr. Lye is a rare bridge between cultures as he was born and raised in Asia but has lived and taught for the last twenty years in the US.
