‌‌9:00‌ ‌am – 9:‌‌40 am ED‌T – D‌a‌i‌ly Practice
‌*10:‌‌00 ‌am – 12‌‌:00 ‌pm E‌D‌T – Kuntuzangpo Prayer & White Tara 


Join us in the profound practice and teachings of Kuntuzangpo’s Prayer & White Tara during the auspicious Summer Solstice celebration with Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche as he begins his teachings in Europe, starting in Spain.  


His name, Kuntuzangpo in Tibetan, Samantabhadra in Sanskrit, means ‘always good’, ‘always well’ or ‘unchanging goodness. ‘ What this signifies is that unchanging goodness, or fundamental goodness, is our ultimate nature.

Recitation of this prayer generates tremendous merit, turns our minds to the Dharma, and inspires us to dedicate our lives to the benefit of all sentient beings.

Its recitation is the quintessence of aspirational bodhicitta and, as explained in the prayer itself, its recitation leads us to perfect enlightenment.



White Tara is one of the three long-life deities. This practice strengthens and restores health and life-force energy.

By relying on White Tara, students are able to accumulate merit and purify negative karma in order to accomplish their aims.  

Our beloved teacher, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, holds White Tara close to his heart.

“Love is the only cause of happiness. Its nature is all-pervasive like space. Love is the sunlight of the mind.

If you receive empowerment, it’s about bodhicitta. If you receive teachings, it’s about bodhicitta. If you practice teachings, it’s about bodhicitta. Everything comes down to bodhicitta. The essence of practice is about bodhicitta. When you sit down to do your practice, what you practice is bodhicitta.”

~ H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, Quotes from the Precious One

WORLDWIDE DHARMA ACTIVITIES




The donations support the worldwide projects to bring benefit to all sentient beings. The projects include: the *Shravasti Summer Retreat Food Offering & the building of *Enlightenment Stupas in Tibet, and in many other countries for World Peace!





JOIN THE TARA STUPA MANDALA!



SUPPORT THE TARA STUPA VISION TO BUILD
8 TARA STUPAS FOR WORLD PEACE


Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche has an aspiration to create Eight Tara Stupas in places around the world in order to benefit countless sentient beings. As part of a Long Life Offering to HE Garchen Rinpoche in May 2023, Khenpo’s sangha presented HE Garchen Rinpoche with 108 Tara crystals for his long life. Rinpoche kept one crystal Tara and gifted the remaining 107 crystal Taras to Khenpo Samdup in order to raise funds for building these stupas in the world.

The first 106 donors to this stupa building fund will receive a crystal Tara in appreciation of their support. In this way, each sponsor will become part of this immense mandala of merit, similar to one bead joining the other beads on a mala string.






DONATIONS ARE APPRECIATED!






May the blessings be endless!
