Tara Puja

Liberation from Sorrow

This practice is held on the 8th of each month.

You may join us in person to participate in the 24-hour Tara Puja livestream, but please be aware that only 12 people may attend in the gompa each time.

At Kadampa Centers worldwide, the eighth of the month is Tara Day. Tara is a female Buddha, whose name means “Rescuer”. She is the embodiment of swift compassion. If we rely upon Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfill all our wishes. Everyone is welcome and invited to join us for Tara’s chanted prayer practice, Liberation from Sorrow. (1 hour)

24-Hour Puja Offered

Join hundreds of people around the world for a powerful online puja at which we recite sincere Prayers and Requests to the Assembly of 21 Taras and deeply request the Blessed Mother to bestow her blessings on all living beings so that all sickness and other obstacles are quickly removed. Everyone is welcome to join in.

This puja is recited six times in the 24-hour period beginning at 02:00 UK time (8 PM CDT on the 7th of the month), with the Praises recited seven times in each session. The session times for CDT are 8 PM, 12 AM, 4 AM, 8 AM, 12 PM, and 4 PM. Join as many sessions as you wish. The livestream is at this link.

Purchasing your own copy of the sadhana for this puja is not required, but your practice will be enhanced if you can follow along.
