White Tara Practice

White Tara mantra, when recited without distraction, enhances our health, strengthens our life force, and protects our mind. Visualize Tara’s blessings enter our body as purifying white light, purging negativities and illnesses as black smoke.  According to the FPMT, “this meditation can be done on behalf of oneself or others. It is frequently done to remove the obstacles to our gurus’ long lives and health. If one has experienced many health problems, accidents, depression, or a loss of 'lust for life', the practice of White Tara can be especially powerful.”

Time:     2:00pm - 3:30pm

Venue:   CTBCC
Cost:      Free (pizzas are served at 1:30pm after the Dharma Class at 12 noon)

Our center will be doing a White Tara practice at 2pm with the aspiration for all Dharma teachers and friends to have long life and good health. May we continue to have Lamas come and give teachings in El Paso and benefit people around this region.  

Amitabha & Phowa Teachings / Practice - Lama Abao

Amitabha is the Buddha of Infinite Light who presides over the western Buddha realm of the Pure Land of Great Bliss, known as Dewachen. Many eons ago, he made an aspiration to manifest a pure land that all beings who made corresponding wishes would be reborn there easily. Dewachen manifested at the time he accomplished Buddhahood.  Faithful devotees of Amitabha will reborn in Dewachen where they receive teachings from Amitabha himself and countless other Buddhas, and progress irreversibly toward enlightenment.
The purpose of Amitabha Practice is to create the causes for rebirth in Dewachen.
Phowa is a practice on the transference of consciousness. According to the Vajrayana Buddhist belief, Phowa can be applied at the time of death by transferring one’s consciousness through the top of the head directed into Dewachen or a Buddha-field of one’s choice.
