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.” 

Dates:    Feb 10, Mar 3, Apr 7, May 5 (Sunday)

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 realized teachers come and give teachings in El Paso and benefit people around this region.
