21 Taras 2.jpeg

Green Tara is a Bodhisattvi, an expression of the highest compassion of all enlightened beings. 

Ιn Tantric Buddhism, she is referred to as the "Mother of All Buddhas" and she is considered as the spiritual Mother to all those who address her and engage in her practice. 

 

 Like a cosmic mother, she protects us from all forms of danger, and provides us with what we need in order to be able to grow and evolve throughout our spiritual journey, 

Green Tara provides us with all the necessary conditions, guidance, inspiration and blessings so as to be able to walk the path safely and successfully.

 

 Green Tara is also called "The Liberator" or "Saviouress" (Drolma in Tibetan), because through her activity she can save countless beings from the 8 outer and 8 inner fears, as well as rebirth in the three lower realms of Samsara.

Green Tara also has the name Nurma meaning "swift", one who can act with great speed, immediacy and efficiency. She is also called Pamo which means “Courageous”. 

 Therefore Tara‘s full name is Drolma-Nurma-Pamo, meaning "The swift and courageous liberator".

 

 Green Tara is a fully enlightened being of the highest bhumi, or level of realization, able to guide all beings to enlightenment. She is the manifestation of the highest wisdom of all Buddhas, the one that incorporates and fulfills their enlightened activity.

It is believed that in times when the negative emotions of beings cause sickness, disaster, and all forms of drawbacks, the practice of Tara can be particularly effective, as it can help to purify and raise our level of consciousness. 

 

 During our three-level journey, we will study different techniques that hold the power and blessings to help us resolve any form of problems while helping us attain high levels of spiritual realization.

 

The teachings of the third will be shared by Michalis Mourtzis MD (A.M) in Rethymno (Crete), from the 30th of March until the 3rd of April 2022.

 

The teaching is open to anyone who is interested and it is not required to have attended the teachings of the first two levels.

Simultaneous English translation will be offered.
