Room: Main Shrine Room

Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown will offer the lung and introduction to the White Tara practice written by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. All graduates of Rigden Weekend are welcome to attend and receive the lung and practice instructions.

White Tara is a lineage practice particularly relied upon in times of domestic and community turmoil and disharmony, and when personal or family health is threatened. She is a peaceful manifestation of the compassionate Tara, who emanated from the tears of Avalokiteshvara witnessing the suffering of beings. She herself is known for seven eyes that also witness the suffering of beings, and she sends her compassionate energy to heal and comfort those who are in need. She also guards the long life of beings. 

White Tara practices have long been popular in Kagyu and Nyingma communities; this particular short practice was composed years ago by Sakyong Mipham to soothe illness, disharmony, and suffering in the Shambhala community.

Suggested donation: $20
Prerequisite: Rigden Weekend

Registration is not required, but is given here as an option, if you'd like.

An ongoing White Tara practice group will meet the first Saturday of each month beginning in January 2019. This group is open to all who have received the lung and is primarily intended for those students who have attended the Rigden Weekend but have not yet attended Sacred World Assembly.

For a full practice day, please join us in the afternoon for a Community Practice Afternoon.
