Initiation of Green Tara

  • Dechen Los Angeles Sakya Buddhist Centr, 220 Pier Avenue Santa Monica, CA 90405 USA (map)

Lama Jampa Thaye will bestow the initiation of Green Tara from the lineage of Shakya Shribhadra. 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.

* Please note that in order to receive the initiation you must have made a formal commitment to the Buddhist path through taking refuge. If you would like to do this beforehand please contact the centre by emailing
