Within Tibetan Buddhism, Green Tara represents the union of wisdom and compassionate activity.
The Green Tara Puja of the Martsang Kagyu lineage derives from Atisha. It is not only a union of wisdom and compassion but is also considered powerful in aiding good health and removing obstacles in other aspects of life, for example your career. Green Tara made a vow to always be born as a woman to help human beings, as the following tale explains.
Many millions of years ago, in a different world system, there lived a young princess named Yeshe Dawa. For quite a number of aeons she made offerings to Tonyo Drupa, the Buddha of that world system, who gave her special instruction concerning bodhicitta - the heart-mind of a Bodhisattva.
During this time there was great inequality between men and women, and so Yeshe Dawa made the following vow, "I have developed bodhicitta as a woman. For all my lifetimes along the path I vow to be born as a woman, and in my final lifetime when I attain Buddhahood, then too, I will be a woman."
This powerful puja will lead by His Holiness Gangri Karma Rinpoche.
This is a free event, but you are welcome to bring offerings such as butter lamps.
