Countdown to the FOURTH public exhibition
– WHITE NIGHT BENDIGO
– first night of Spring!
Gaze at a visual shortcut to inner peace…
A giant blast of positive power! BIG LOVE!
Next chance to see Tara Institute‘s gigantic 21 Taras Thangka is at the Town Hall, in the middle of the White Night Bendigo festivities on Saturday night, 1 September, 7pm-2am. Bring friends and family to open hearts, free minds of negativity and nourish the seeds of enlightenment. Of architectural proportions, this thangka is taller than a 4-storey building!
The 21 Taras Thangka presents ancient sacred geometry that quiets the mind just by looking at it. Images of deities are a valuable tool for those of us who find meditation difficult! Gaze at beauty, strength and fearlessness. Take a shortcut to a calm mind in an agitated world.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche commissioned and gave this awe-inspiring thangka to Tara Institute, asking us to display to as many people as possible. It took 4 years to paint in France and it’s already been exhibited here in Victoria three times. Rinpoche says it will bless animals and humans, so it is open to anyone of any belief or any way of life.
“So now, anybody believer or not believer, just seeing statue of Buddha, painting of Buddha, creates far more great merit than somebody making offerings of universes filled with jewels…. Secondly, it is a female. Female. Women liberated. Exactly what is needed.”
“This is a way to leave imprints
for all the people [who see it],
—Lama Zopa Rinpoche
“OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA”
‘Just as all past Buddhas have been liberated, may I be liberated from discontent, from fears, external dangers, internal delusions and confusion! May this meaning take root in my mind!’ (Translation of the Sanskrit mantra of Green Tara)
