Cittamani Tara Group

Tara is the female emanation of the Buddha and the mother figure in Tibetan Buddhism. In this practice we make requests to Tara for beings who are experiencing illness or difficulties.This group has been meeting since August of 2001 when Geshe Kalsang Damdul suggested we practice this abbreviated Cittamani Tara form.
