Practice of the Noble Liberator Green TARA

Buddhism has many practices of various forms. All of them are intended to dispel the veils that cover the true nature of the mind, the Buddha nature.

This practice allows the practitioner to enter into a relationship with TARA, the feminine and liberating aspect of the Buddhas, and then to realize her qualities in his own mind.

TARA is the Liberator, because as immeasurable wisdom, she frees those who realize her from all suffering.

The practice of TARA will be addressed using the text as a support.

Om Khenpo Pema:
Khenpo Pema Wangdak föddes 1954 i Purang i västra Tibet och är munk och lärare inom Sakya-traditionen. 1959 flydde han med sin familj och hamnade i ett flyktingläger i Mundgod i södra Indien. Vid sju års ålder blev han munk och efter att ha avslutat sina studier sändes han 1982 av H H Sakya Trizin till New York.
1989 grundade han Vikramasila Foundation som stödjer utbildningsinsatser både i USA på andra håll. Palden Sakya Centers for Tibetan Buddhist studies and Meditation har verksamhet i New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Maine och Ohio. I Mundgod i Indien driver man Pema Ts’al School för tibetanska barn och i Pokara i Nepal ligger Pema Ts’al Sakya Monastic Institute. Det finns även en Pema Ts’al College i New York som bygger på samma principer som skolan i Indien.

Khenpo Pema är mycket intresserad av tibetansk språkpedagogik och har bland annat skapat en blindskrift för tibetanska känd som Bur Yig.
2007 fick han titeln Khenpo av H H Sakya Trizin och 2009 belönades han som första tibetan med Ellis Island Medal of Honor, en utmärkelse för amerikanska invandrare som bidragit till det amerikanska samhället.
Första gången Khenpo Pema besökte Sverige var 1991 på inbjudan av Svenska Tibetkommittén. 1992 besökte han återigen Sverige och kom för första gången till Göteborg där han gjorde ett kort besök hos den grupp som träffades hemma hos Jan Bärmark och 1993 kom han tillbaka för ett något längre besök. Året efter, 1994, bildades föreningen för tibetansk buddhism i Göteborg inför att vi på egen hand bjöd in Khenpo Pema till ett längre besök. Sedan dess har han besökt Göteborg i stort sett varje år, senaste besöket var 2016.

The Eight Verses for Training the Mind is a classic short Tibetan Buddhist text in the lojong – mind training — tradition composed by the Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa, who lived from 1054 to 1123 CE.

Lo-jong, or mind training, is a Tibetan tradition of mental and emotional cultivation. The practice is aimed at helping a person become more compassionate towards others, including friends and enemies, which can be very beneficial in daily life.

His Holiness the Dalai Lama say:
“The essential message of the lojong teaching is that if we want to see a better world, we should begin by improving our own mind. For me, the lojong tradition stands as the heart of the Buddha’s message of peace. It teaches us how to regard others with the dignity and care that they deserve, and also how to transcend the limitations of conventional ego-grasping. In brief, it is a guideline for our own enlightenment, leading to enlightened conduct in our own dealings with others.”
