In October, Khenpo Ngawang Dhamchoe provided Sydney students, friends and zoomers with a special teaching on the Four Mandala Ritual of Arya Tara at our Croydon centre. Some made the trip from Queensland, others from the South Coast and some were travellers from the USA along with the Sydneysiders who had requested Khenpo la to give teachings earlier this year.
At the conclusion of the weekend, Khenpo la kindly blessed students with a very precious Tara statue that had looked after Khenpo la’s father and family in many dangerous situations.
As the crowns of the devas and asuras bow down to your lotus feet, may the auspiciousness of the Arya Tara, the liberator from all poverty, arise.
To the Deity whom I have called upon throughout all of my lives, the action principle of all the Buddhas of the three times, emerald green in colour, with one face and two hands, swift and peaceful lady, may the auspiciousness of she who holds the Utpala flower arise!
To Arya Tara who grants attainments swiftly, the glorious Atisha, sole deity of the Land of Snows, Gyalwa Drom, an emanation of Avalokiteshvara, I supplicate, grant the supreme and common siddhis!
By the power of the supplications made according to this ritual, may the entire source of plagues, illnesses and negative spirits be pacified and may all siddhis, both supreme and common, be achieved through these blessings, swiftly and effortlessly!
