Green Tara retreat with Yangsi Rinpoche, 23.-24. of June, 2018
We are extremely pleased to announce that Yangsi Rinpoche will be visiting Copenhagen in June.
Rinpoche teaches in English and is admired wherever he travels for his unique presentation of the Dharma, his interest in and enthusiasm for Western culture, and his evident embodiment of the wisdom and compassion of the Buddhist path.
Tara is a female bodhisattva who in myth was born from Chenrezig’s tears of compassion. She is known to protect from fear and danger, heal illness, increase longevity and prosperity. On the ultimate level, she awakens wisdom so that we can realize the true nature of reality. In the Mahayana Buddhist tradition, it is believed that the practice of Tara brings instant help to overcome all problems and to actualize our material needs and heartfelt wishes.
During his visit, Rinpoche will also be giving a public talk with the title “Walking in the footsteps of the Buddha in the busy streets of the West”. For more information about the Green Tara retreat and the public talk please download CVM Yangsi Rinpoche
