Tara is a female Buddha, whose name means “Rescuer”. She is the embodiment of swift compassion. If we rely upon Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes.
At Kadampa Centers worldwide, the eighth of the month is Tara Day. The practice we do is called “Liberation from Sorrow” and lasts about an hour and a quarter
Everyone is welcome to join these prayers which will be dedicated to peace in our world.
