Green Tara represents swift activity to overcome obstacles, fears and dangers of many kinds, in particular the sixteen fears and dangers. These sixteen fears represent eight external and eight internal fears and dangers.
When we are in a state of uncertainty, all sorts of possibilities arise and this can give rise to fear and worry. What is around the corner? What is in the darkness? Anything could happen. Lack of certainty and clarity creates fear and this can give rise to many negative emotions.
Lama Zangmo will go through these in detail to give more understanding of both the Tara practice itself, which is done every Sunday morning at Kagyu Samye Dzong London, as well as give more understanding of how to deal with the harmful emotions.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
