What beautiful, liberating qualities of heart and mind can be cultivated in every moment?
In this Day of Practice, we introduce and explore the qualities of the popular Himalayan deity, Tara. Tara can be seen as both a symbolic representation of the Original Ground of Awakened Awareness, and as the affectionately named Mother of All Buddhas.
Sangha Live’s founding teacher, Martin Aylward, helps us to explore the symbolism of Tara, and invites us to recognise, invoke and cultivate the qualities she represents: clarity and wisdom, playfulness and spontaneity, confidence and skilfulness, tenderness and compassion. Martin also decodes what can sometimes seem like an overly complex or esoteric relationship to deity symbolism.
This session includes sitting meditation practice and chanting of the Tara Mantra.
