Ehrw. Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche

The crown of Buddha – Ushnishavijaja Tara online

Saturday 13. March 2021, 15:00 Uhr - Saturday 20. March 2021, 17:00 Uhr; 7 days
Course language: English , Translation to: Deutsch

Female Buddha of Wisdom and Longevity : 

Initiation, commentary, mantra retreat, concluding with a fire puja.

Buddha Shakyamuni taught the Dhahran of the white, female Buddha Ushnishavijaya Tara directly by the power of his ushnisha/elevation on his crown. The ushnisha can replace the voice of the Buddha. When the Buddha communicates through this organ, it is not easy for us human beings to understand or even perceive this information. Veils of ignorance can obscure his voice. This method of communication is available to the Buddha in order to save living beings from the ocean of samsara. The profound wisdom, the understanding of emptiness, is in the foreground of this practice, in order to lift the veils of ignorance and become receptive to this form of communication.

In Tibet, the practice was widespread as a practice in longevity. Many realised masters bore witness to this effect.

The new stupa on the grounds of Ganden Chokhor is specially dedicated to the female Buddha Ushnishavijaya.


The course (except the initiation)  will remain open for 14 days – until Sunday 28 March 2021

As a possibility to complete the mantra retreat individually / incl. fire puja.
