About the Practice of White Tara
Of the 21 Taras, the two most popular are Green Tara and White Tara. White Tara, a manifestation of the Buddha, also known as the Mother of Compassion, is regarded for her qualities of healing and activities to benefit others. She grants grants health, healing and longevity swiftly like a mother running to help her crying child. All powerful White Tara has 7 eyes — with an eye in her forehead, and one on each hand and foot — symbolizing her compassionate vigilance to see all the suffering of the world.

Almost everyone has obstacles in their life that could lead to an untimely death. This is because we have fixed karmas and unfixed karmas. If the obstacles are due to the exhaustion of  your good karma and merit, then in order to prolong your life now, you need to practice powerful ways to collect a lot of merit, such as taking long life initiations, reciting the mantras of long life deities, saving the lives of animals and people, offering medicine to people and taking care of sick people, offering food, clothing and shelter to the poor people. This of course only matters if you yourself are making your life meaningful to live long and practice the Dharma.

If the obstacles in your life and untimely death are due to the accumulation of negative karma, the you must  purify it. Tara will help with it as she is very quick to fulfill our wishes and to grant us happiness and a long life, as well as to help us develop wisdom.

Speaker

  • Khentrul Rinpoche
    Khentrul Rinpoche
    Non-Sectarian Master of Kalachakra

    Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and spiritual director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.

    Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of peace and harmony (dzokden).
