21 Praises to Tara, the Female Buddha: Expressions of Thanksgiving

Jacqueline Mandell, Fri. Nov. 17, 7-8:30pm, $20

Buddhism acknowledges our precious human birth as an opportunity to bring forth powerful, ethical and compassionate principles to life. Naming, honoring, and visualizing these principles can spark greater awareness in our day to day life and practice. Join Buddhist teacher Jacqueline Mandell for an evening contemplating and naming the 21 aspects of or “praises to” Tara, the female Buddha. This simple yet profound practice helps us acknowledge the positive forces of our world and honor our own sacred potentiality. The evening will conclude with a sharing of the merit or positive energy of this practice as a Thanksgiving Offering.  Jacqueline Mandell is a Senior Buddhist Teacher who has taught internationally for over a quarter of a century. She has trained in India, Burma, Thailand, Japan and Tibet and is the Resident Teacher of Samden Ling in Portland.  SamdenLing.org
