Rinpoche will give a talk on:
"How to Practice Loving Kindness and Compassion In Daily Life"

Buddha taught infinite methods to tame the mind and progress on the path of liberation, such as impartial loving kindness and compassion. In this degenerate age, sentient beings suffer from mental poisons of ignorance, pride, desire, etc., but especially anger. Loving kindness and compassion is the remedy for the mental poison of anger. Rinpoche will explain how to cultivate and practice loving kindness and compassion in daily situations so that mental poisons such as anger can be worked with skillfully, rather than indulging in them and causing us to fall into negativity.

Green Tara

Buddha Shakyamuni prophesized in many sutras that one who practices Tara and recites her mantra will rapidly remove obstacles on the spiritual path and will progress speedily towards awakening. Because she was empowered by the Buddhas of the Three Times, Tara embodies the activity of all the enlightened ones. She expresses the female energy of the Buddha's compassion. Receiving the Green Tara empowerment, learning and practicing the meditation can greatly support and protect one's Dharma practice and can help to overcome unfortunate circumstances.

When taking the Bodhisattva vow, as is traditional when receiving a Vajrayana-level empowerment such as Green Tara, it's important to have the attitude of awakening, the altruistic motivation to walk on the path of awakening for the sake of all sentient beings.
