At Kadampa Centers worldwide, the 8th of the month is Tara Day.
Tara is a female Buddha whose name means ‘Rescuer’. She is the embodiment of swift compassion. If we rely upon Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Everyone is welcome and invited to join us for Tara’s chanted prayer practice, Liberation from Sorrow. (1 hour)
In lifetime after lifetime, Tara has manifested in female form to demonstrate that enlightenment is attainable by men and women alike. ~ Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
