The Tantra of Arya Tara Retreat – an introduction to the practice with Ven Tony Beaumont

09/10/2023 @ 9:00 am - 13/10/2023 @ 2:30 pm AEST

$30.00 – $150.00

About Event:

Tara can be understood on many different levels. First, she is a historical figure, a person who generated bodhicitta—the altruistic intention to attain full enlightenment in order to benefit all living beings most effectively—and then actualized that intention by becoming a buddha. Second, she is a manifestation of the enlightened activities of a buddha, and third, she is our buddha potential in its future, fully purified and evolved form.

Ven Tony Beaumont returns to lead this lovely retreat and will help people come to an understanding of the practice which enables t to arouse this beautiful energy within themselves.

 In an effort to create conditions that will support our Chenrezig Institute community and generally inspire us, we have been placing special emphasis on the practices of Arya Tara throughout 2023. This is directly connected to Geshela’s request that the Chenrezig Institute community recite 100,000 Praises to the 21 Taras and generally engage in the practices of Arya Tara in order to remove all obstacles to being able to effortlessly realise the New Gompa and Centre Development Project.

This retreat is really suitable for all, for those beginning their path and investigating the methods of tantra, as well as for more experienced students wishing to deepen their understanding and enjoy these days of instruction and meditation practice.

It is not necessary to have received any initiation or lung to participate in the retreat. Included in the schedule will be an explanation of the Buddhist path and the various parts of the practice itself.

The first session of the retreat will be at 9.00am on Monday 9th October and there will be regular sessions throughout the days until the early afternoon session on Friday 13th October.
