Tara is a meditational deity in Tibetan Buddhism and the embodiment of the compassionate action of all the Buddhas.
We hold weekly Tara Pujas at Jamyang Buddhist Centre to benefit all sentient beings and to remove obstacles to the Centre’s projects. The puja lasts for 30 minutes and all are welcome.
Pujas are chanted prayer ceremonies which show respect and devotion. You can join in the prayers and chanting from the sadhana (spiritual text) or simply sit, listen and enjoy the blessings. Please feel free to bring offerings (for example incense, fruit, flowers, biscuits) for the shrine – especially for the Tsog pujas.
Suggested donation £3
**On the first Monday of each month, excluding bank holidays ( 8 May, 5 June, 3 July) we would like to extend a special welcome to parents with babies and children under 5 to join us for the Tara puja. Please note we are not a creche and unfortunately do not have specific facilities for small children such as a changing area in the building. But if you would like to bring your toddlers and babies along to join in with the puja then please do. We will have some small bells and other instruments so children can join in.
