Learning to Live Without Fear

Living in states of fear, worry, and anxiety are commonplace these days. Through our relationship with Green Tara, we can learn how to develop fearlessness. This confidence comes from our lived experience and a wisdom that grows alongside our Buddhist faith.

Green Tara is our Spiritual Mother. She is known as the Swift One, the Heroine. Tara bestows upon us spiritual confidence, by proving to us, time and again, how she quickly helps us in every situation when we turn to her. Once we have established a relationship with Green Tara, we will quickly experience the growth of our inner strength, confidence and wisdom.

Over the empowerment weekend we have an opportunity to receive the blessing empowerment of Green Tara. This acts as both a blessing ceremony and an initiation into a special way of relying on Green Tara throughout our life. This will be followed by a teaching and then a retreat where we will engage in the practice, Liberation from Sorrow, praises and requests to Green Tara.

The Teacher

Kelsang Jangsem is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Centre Sydney in Redfern.
