Cittamani Tara Puja

Hybrid Events

Tuesday, 14 September 2021 @ 10:30 am 12:00 pm

Arya Tara is the Buddha of quick help. She guards from all fears and anxieties, removes obstacles, and energises and inspires our practice.

Arya Tara is the manifestation of all the buddhas’ enlightened activity, and this ceremony is particularly helpful in removing obstacles, receiving help in emergencies, resolving conflicts and energising spiritual practice. In the aspect of Cittamani Tara, she benefits quickly the mind of those who pray to her. Tara is the guardian from all fears and anxieties. She arrives, ready to put to right the most terrible of situations. Everyone will benefit from this practice, whether they are religious or not.

We chant praises to the 21 Taras, make long mandala offerings, strew flowers and present offerings with the traditional hand gestures (mudras). This offering ceremony is chanted in both English and Tibetan. It is rich in symbolism.

There will be an opportunity to make a personal dedications for the well-being of friends and family, for the sick and vulnerable, for healing the planet and for the halt of the coronavirus. We also dedicate for our holy gurus, success in our studies, and for all our Dharma aspirations.

Remember to BYO mandala set (if you have one) and any ritual implements. If you bring offerings to the puja, please make sure they are commercially wrapped, as we will distribute the to the needy at a later date.

If you are joining us from home download the relevant texts here. The FPMT Foundation store may say “only people with the appropriate initiation may use this” . In regard to Cittamani Tara Puja, as long as the puja leader has the initiation, everyone is most welcome to attend, but if you want to do it on your own at some other time, you need the Cittamani Tara initiation.

Lama Zopa Rinpoche gave us specific advice when we first moved to Camp Hill, that in order for the centre to survive and to flourish we needed great stores of merit. One of the practices he recommended was for us to do Tara Puja and Medicine Buddha Puja together as a group. So even if you cannot be there physically, you can still be very much involved. In this way, we can all contribute to the continuation of our wonderful LTC.

Many of us in the modern world are time-poor, but this need not be an obstacle to participating in the spiritual heart of Langri Tangpa Centre – the pujas and practices. Reading dedications from our people that couldn’t make it on the night helps to develop a sense of community, and brings a face to the dedication “for all sentient beings”.
