Permission Initiation (Jenang) of Green Tara In-Person

 Registration is closed for this event
Geshe Sonam will give the initiation of Green Tārā, the female Buddha of enlightened activity who is as swift as the wind.


We ask that people who will be attending the Green Tara initiation in-person at the Burlington Public Library register ahead of time. This will help us to better prepare to welcome you for this special event.

During the ceremony participants will be led through a series of special meditations to receive the blessings of the holy body, speech, and mind of Tārā, connecting them with her practice in a deep way.

An initiation (jenang) is a ritual through which the teacher connects students with the holy body, speech, and mind of the deity through a series of meditative visualizations and ceremonies.

Participation requirements: Anyone who wishes to receive this as a blessing may do so. Students who wish to receive the initiation fully should take refuge and bodhisattva precepts, which will be included in the preliminaries to the initiation for those who have not previously received them. Geshe la asks all participants to maintain a vegetarian diet on the day of the initiation, and if possible the morning before the initiation to avoid eating the five pungent plants: garlic, onions, shallots, leeks and chives.
