• Empowerment of Arya Tara


    The Empowerment of the Enlightened Mother Arya Tara

    This blessing empowerment will be given at Kalpa Bhadra Kadampa Buddhist Center with Kelsang Chondzin. Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas. Her name means “Rescuer” because she rescues us from all outer and inner fears. Ultimately she rescues us from all suffering and guides us to full enlightenment. Like a mother she protects us from all internal and external dangers; she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path. Everyone is welcome!


    Kelsang Chondzin has been practicing Kadampa Buddhism for almost 20 years under the guidance of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso and his senior Teachers. Chondzin is known for her gentle kindness, patience, and practical presentation of Buddha’s teachings that are easy to apply in modern daily life.
