Receiving Arya Tara's Protection

In May 2006, over 2,500 people gathered at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre in England for the 12th International Spring Festival of Kadampa Buddhism.

They came to sit at the feet of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, who granted the empowerment of Arya Tara and the commentary to the practice of Liberation from Sorrow.

Profound union
Geshe-la started by giving profound teachings on the union of the two truths and taught how to practice it within the context of both Sutra and Tantra.

He then bestowed the blessings and protection of Arya Tara and showed how to rely upon her to achieve both temporary and ultimate liberation from suffering.

Geshe-la explained how all living beings receive care and protection from emanations of Arya Tara - every single day.

Extraordinary friend
It was a very special time, during which we formed an extraordinary friendship with Arya Tara - and learned a lot about the kindness of the mother!

Thank you, Geshe-la.
