Green Tara – For the earthquake in Turkey and Syria

Please join us in responding to the devastating earthquake that struck Turkey and Syria on Monday, February 6, which has killed over 23,000 people, and will impact millions of lives, including many children. We encourage you to do Green Tara practice. It can be as simple as reciting her mantra, or doing any form of Green Tara practice that you know.
The mantra of Green Tara is: Oṃ Tāre Tuttāre Ture Svāhā
Imagine yourself as Green Tara, who is seated with one leg in meditation, and one leg stretched out to swiftly respond to those in need. Imagine green light radiating out from her heart, and from the mantra which circles around her heart. Imagine this green light going out to all of those impacted by the earthquakes, and helping those who have passed and those who are alive and suffering – bringing healing, shelter, food, clothing, and all forms of relief.
For the Lama Live! event that took place on Sunday, February 12, Dorje Lopön Chandra Easton offered teachings and mantra recitation for Green Tara. To watch this video, click here.
