White Tara Long Life Empowerment (August 24) – His Eminence the 7th Kyabje Yongzin Ling Rinpoche will impart the White Tara Long Live empowerment. White Tara is a female Buddha of compassion. Her practice is said to help increase one’s lifespan, merit, and wisdom.
The Amitabha Initiation (August 25) – Amitabha Buddha (whose name is often translated as the Buddha of Limitless Light) is associated with his pure land of Sukhavati–the Land of Bliss). In Mahayana Buddhist traditions, many practitioners pray to Amitabha to be reborn in Sukhavati themselves and also pray for their loved ones who’ve passed to be reborn there. Amitabha is also known as the celestial guru of Avalokitesvara and Tara, the male and female buddhas of compassion.
