Explaining Green Tara Practice - April 14
Tara is the Buddha of "enlightened activities", those activities are done in order to help us to overcome obstacles and achieve our goals according to our wishes.
We may have different goals that we want to achieve in our studies, work, general life, and of course with regard to our Dharma practice. Our success depends on having enough "merit" and few adverse conditions. In order to remove those obstacles and to encounter success, we request help from Tara, so that she may quickly act for the benefit of oneself and others.
The practice of patience - May 19
Anger is one of our most destructive emotions. In just one moment of anger, we can destroy other people's lives as well as our own. But how can we learn to control this poisonous emotion? According to Buddhism, patience is one of the best antidotes against anger. Using the sixth chapter of Shantideva's 'A Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life', Geshe Rinchen will show in two weekends how we can learn to control and even completely overcome anger and frustration by using meditation on patience.
