2021 Annual Benefit Gala

Gala Offerings and Pledge Opportunities

On November 6th, 2021, the Tara Mandala Global Sangha gathered virtually for our 2nd Annual Benefit Gala.  Thank you all for your generosity!  This year we were fortunate to receive a matching grant that started at $33,000 and was increased to $100,000 during the event!  On the 6th, we raised approximately $80,000 toward the match, so the generous match sponsors have offered to keep the running tally open for a few more weeks.  We hope you take advantage of this opportunity to double the impact of your donation.

Tara Mandala is a tax-exempt non-profit 501c3 organization, and we rely on the generosity of our Sangha and donors to bring Lama Tsultrim’s vision to life each year. With approximately 50% of funding coming from donations, your donations support the vital work of Tara Mandala to bring insights and awareness of Buddhist practice and the sacred feminine to a growing global community.

Crystal Tara

Inspired by the creativity of two fellow Sangha members, Lama Tsultrim has commissioned an exquisite 3D crystal cube laser-etched reproduction of her very own Green Tara statue. This sacred Green Tara statue was given to Lama Tsultrim 40 years ago after her youngest daughter passed away and sits upon her teaching shrine. You will be awed by the extraordinary detail captured in this beautiful Crystal Tara.

Yeshe Tsogyal Statue, Ösel Nyingtig

Tulku Ösel Dorje and Lama Tsultrim Allione collaborated with artisans in Nepal to create a Yeshe Tsogyal statue for the Ösel Nyingtig lineage. They spent months perfecting the face, stature, and implements, resulting in a statue that is a beautiful representation of the deity. Standing at 5.75” tall, this fine statue has an electro-gold finish and is available either unfilled or filled with sacred items.

You may also have the statue filled and blessed by Lama Gyurme, with sacred substances in the vajrayana tradition. More info on Lama Gyurme can be found here.

Please note that filled statues will take at least 4 weeks to prepare and ship; international packages may take longer.

Simhamukha Mandala

Tara Mandala is delighted to offer Giclée prints of this beautiful original artwork, created by a Sangha member: Simhamukha Mandala: Welcoming Primal Charnel Grounds of Change, a gouache painting by artist Michele Tanaka. Created within the practice container of A-yu Khandro’s terma of Simhamukha, it is a useful companion piece to anyone engaged in this sadhana. Sealed with mantras and a golden double vajra on the reverse side, and consecrated with mantras and prayers by Lama Tsultrim Allione.
