Sakya Pandita's 'Reply to Nyimo Gomchen' (part 2) and Initiation of Green Tara

  • Sakya Thinley Rinchen Ling, Bristol, UK 121 Sommerville Rd BS6 5BX United Kingdom

This text consists of a series of questions, put to Sakya Pandita, concerning the essence of dharma and the stages of practice. In his responses, Sakya Pandita clearly defines the dharma and describes its fundamental constituents. He removes confusion about the lama and emptiness and points out the need to balance study with meditation.

Meditation on Green Tara is one of the most widely practised in Tibetan Buddhism. The goddess herself is the embodiment of the liberating activity of all the buddhas. As such her initiation and meditation are especially effective means of awakening one’s innate capacity for enlightened compassion.
