THE STRENGTH OF FAITH AND WISDOM

Fall International Post Festival Retreat 2022

Comment to the 21 tributes

of October 22 to 26

During this post fall festival retreat Gen Kelsang Chokga will lead meditations based on the special teachings received from Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong at the NKT-IKBU Fall Festival 2022 on the sublime twenty-one tributes to Tara, based on the transmission she received directly from the Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

A manifestation of wisdom

Green Tara is a female enlightened being, the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, who protects sentient beings from external and internal obstacles and guides them towards the achievement of all stages of the path to enlightenment.

Trusting Mother Tara and asking for her help, we frequently recite twenty-one special verses of praise or homage. These precious praises are the true words of the Buddha and are considered an authentic Sutra.

By understanding the meaning of these verses, we will approach the twenty-one emanations of Tara and constantly receive their special blessings and protection.

Teacher

Gen Kelsang Chokga. Resident teacher of the KMC Spain and national spiritual director of the NKT in Spain and Portugal.
