White Tara - Long Life and Health- Teaching and Blessing
Lifelong Wellness, Inc. again welcomes Namdrol Rinpoche of Thekchen Choling (Singapore/Syracuse) to Utica to give an explanation and teaching on White Tara.
Rinpoche will also bestow a White Tara Long-Life Blessing for the public and transmit the sacred healing White Tara mantra. (Namdrol Rinpoche was in Utica last year and gave a presentation about his Teacher’s relics). “Tara” literally means “One who saves”. White Tara’s special function is to promote long life, peace, prosperity and health. She is the protective, helpful and comforting mother who shows limitless kindness, generosity and protection. No previous understanding required; come with an open heart. Suggested donation $30. No one turned away.
Born in Singapore in 1974 to a Chinese Taoist family, Lama Namdrol Rinpoche is a “tulku”, the recognized reincarnation of a Buddhist master from Tibet. Drawn to Buddhism at an early age, Lama Namdrol studied with teachers from the Thervada, Chinese Mahayana and Tibetan traditions. For many years he trained not as a monk, but as a lay Tibetan Buddhist yogi at Kopan Monastery in Nepal, before founding his own temple, Thekchen Choling Singapore in 2001 and Thekchen Choling Syracuse in 2014. Fluent in English and Mandarin Chinese, Lama Namdrol is known for his fresh, lively, down-to-earth style, as well as his practical wisdom and insightful humor.
