Lead by Lama Trinley, the Green Tara Retreat is a silent retreat with no food (only drink) after lunch each day.

In the Buddhist tradition, the goddess Tara is the feminine counterpart of the Avalokitesvara. It is told that Tara first appeared rising from a lotus blossom in the lake that had formed from Avalokitesvara’s tears of compassion, tears that fell when he first beheld the scope of suffering in the world.

Green Tara practice is beneficial during periods of having obstacles in our lives. The Green Tara always helps for she has love and compassion for all sentient beings. We dedicate the Green Tara Retreat to our guru, Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche for good health, longevity and baring no obstacle during his three-year retreat.
