White Tara is a female Buddha who increases the lifespan, wisdom, and good fortune of living beings. If we pray to her with faith, she has special abilities to protect us from contagious diseases, and the dangers of fire, floods, earthquakes, and other disasters. White Tara’s blessings are immensely powerful – they can even destroy the terrible Lord of Death who arrives to steal away our life!
White Tara is the kind and compassionate Buddha Mother of all living beings. And just like Green Tara, we receive White Tara’s help as swiftly as the wind moves. - “Meeting the Buddhas”, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

24-Hour Green Tara chanting starts at KMC Texas tomorrow at 7pm. We don’t spend the entire 24-hours straight chanting; we do 6 one-hour sessions of Green Tara prayers evenly spaced throughout a 24-hour period. Some people will bring sleeping bags and sleep in the meditation room overnight and do the 3am session.
Anyone in the DFW area is welcome. We also have a vegetarian potluck after the first 7pm session that is open to anyone.
