Set up Altar and Gompa for Tara Mini-Retreat with Geshe Gelek

10:30 am Friday, April 26, 2019


Protector, remover of obstacles, model of enlightened activity, inspiration to Lama Atisha - Tara is all of these. Doing Tara practice clears obstacles in our spiritual lives and helps us attain our positive goals, both spiritual and mundane.

Come join in the first part of the retreat practice: setting up the altar and gompa in preparation for the retreat. 

This involves bringing the 21 Taras from the main altar to a special altar the center of the gompa, and setting up everything needed for offerings.

Find out details about the full retreat here.

In this two day mini-retreat, Geshe Gelek will instruct and lead us in how to do Tara retreat.  He recommends that students bring notebooks or other means of taking notes, so that later we can do retreat on our own.

This is a daytime rereat - we will not sleep over at the Center.

Please note that lunch breaks are only one hour, so there is very little time to go out for lunch. All are strongly advised to bring a bag lunch.

Anyone is welcome to attend any session, but we encourage all to try to attend the full retreat to get the maximum benefit.
