Reflections on the Tara Retreat, 2018
The Tara Retreat and Dolma Yuldok practice, 2018 was a week long program organised by Druk Ralung Shedrup Choling and presided by Gyalwa Dokhampa, with the primary objective to create an understanding on the essence and conduct of practices for the 21 Taras. It also endeavored to incorporate the practices into our daily lives for lay practitioners towards accumulation of merit, purification with the final goal of transforming our mind and recognizing our own nature of mind.
However, the recitation was without much understanding but I had hoped that due to my merit accumulation (at least speech merit accumulation) I would one day have my eureka moment and understand the profound meanings of the recitation. That moment for me came with the opportunity to partake in the Tara Retreat, 2018.
