Green Tara Live
With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lopon Charlotte Rotterdam
June 12 – July 31, 2021
Green Tara sits with one foot in the meditative posture and one foot in the world, thus embodying active compassion and serving as a model for modern day contemplative life. In this online course, you have the opportunity to learn to embody Green Tara, the female Buddha of compassion, who provides protection from fears and obstacles.
This is a great introductory course for understanding ‘deity’ practice in Buddhism. Green Tara is one of the most beloved and important deities in Tibetan Buddhism. Taught by Lama Tsultrim Allione and Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam, it includes 4 Live Webcasts with Lopön Charlotte Rotterdam.
