During the 2022 Fall Festival, Gen-la Dekyong, General Spiritual Director of NKT-IKBU, will grant the blessing empowerment of Buddha Green Tara and give special teachings on the sublime twenty-one homages based on a transmission she received directly from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Wisdom manifestation

Green Tara is a female enlightened being, the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, who protects living beings from outer and inner obstacles and guides them to the attainment of all the stages of the path to enlightenment.

Drawing closer

In relying on Mother Tara and requesting her help, we frequently recite twenty-one special verses of praise, or homage. These precious words are Buddha’s own speech and are considered to be actual Sutra.

At the Fall Festival, Gen-la will give an explanation of these special verses based on the transmission she received from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.

Through understanding the meaning of these verses we will draw closer to the twenty-one emanations of Tara and constantly receive special blessings and protection.
