Tara puja

13 September and 11 October

18:30-19:30

Green Tara is a meditational deity in Tibetan Buddhism and the embodiment of the compassionate action of all the Buddhas. She is the Swift Liberator who comes quickly to the aid of those in need. Tara is specifically associated with overcoming hindrances.

The practice of Tara is powerful to help us overcome our fears, reduce stress, achieve a better future, heal illness, as well as improve our relationships with ourselves and others. Those who take Green Tara as their personal deity (Yidam) receive tremendous benefits. Yet, if anyone completes just one Tara mantra with positive intention, it is also very beneficial.

All the Buddhas possess ultimate wisdom and compassion, however each Buddha has certain unique qualities based upon his/her specific motivation prior to becoming enlightened.  Tara is associated with the qualities of action and protection (much like a mother or father for their child), kindness and caring. Tara manifests herself frequently in our world and it is said that those who meditate on Tara receive these qualities more quickly than through meditation on other Buddhas.

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. Donations welcome.

Classes and pujas are offered for free at Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds so as many people as possible can benefit. We do not get grants and all donations go towards running the Centre. You can donate when you arrive at the Centre or online by clicking the link on the right.

Tara puja (Praises to the 21 Taras)2018-03-14T14:40:19+01:00

The Day of Miracles: Chittamani Tara puja:

The Day of Miracles is traditional held at the end of a 15 day celebration to mark the start of the Tibetan New Year (Losar).

During this period the Lord Buddha performed many miracles and we are marking the end of this period, and an auspicious day in the calendar, with a special Chittamani Tara puja.

Pujas are chanted prayer ceremonies. You can join in the prayers and chanting from the sadhana (meditation manual) or simply sit, listen and enjoy the blessings.

In Tibetan Buddhism Tara is the embodiment of the compassionate action of all the Buddhas and ”Praises to the 21 Taras” is one of the practices Jamyang Buddhist Centre Leeds was advised to do by Dagri Rinpoche, a much loved and respected Tibetan Buddhist Lama within the Gelugpa tradition who came to Leeds in 2016.

Tara is sometimes called the “swift pacifier” as this traditional Tibetan Buddhist devotional practice is very useful for removing obstacles you may have in your daily life, and in particular for progress on the spiritual path.

Although this is quite an esoteric practice with recitation of prayers, visualisations, meditation and chanting the 21 verse praises to Tara in Tibetan and English, the puja and what to do will be explained as we go through and is suitable for everyone.
Pujas are open to everyone so please book using the button above or just drop-by if you would like to join us. Please feel free to bring flowers, biscuits or fruit for the shrine.
Suggested donation £3.
There is also a short Tara puja at JBCL every Monday (except public holidays) at 12:30 – 13:15pm.
