Sukhasiddhi Foundation is honored to offer this rare teaching on White Tara with Lama Drupgyu.

White Tara, also known as both the Noble Deathless Lady and the Wish-Fulfilling Wheel, transmits the timeless, non-dual awareness wisdom and increasing vitality for long life. Meditating on her transforms our distorted view of self into the actuality of embodying the profound love, wisdom and radiant luminosity of who we really are. As a form manifestation of the perfection of wisdom, the realization of emptiness, she is what gives birth to all the Buddhas, male and female.

Meditating on Tara helps to awaken our Buddha nature as well as the enlightened qualities. Lama Drupgyu will provide in-depth instructions on the practice, and lead guided meditations to help us cultivate a relationship with White Tara. A White Tara (Drolkar) empowerment will be given on Sunday.

Lama Drupgyu Tenzin is one of the most accomplished and articulate western practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, and completely dedicated to the advancement of the combined study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism. A student of H.E. Kalu Rinpoche since 1972, and a monk from 1974 to 1995, Lama Drupgyu participated in the first traditional three-year retreat for westerners from 1976 to 1980, in France. Kalu Rinpoche subsequently appointed him the first western Lama to lead one of his centers, at his center in Paris. Following two years there, he became the first westerner to be appointed Retreat Master of a three-year retreat. After leading two three-year retreats, he participated for six years in the translation of Jamgon Kangtrul’s Treasury of Knowledge.

Lama Drupgyu assisted in the founding of Tsadra Foundation, where he is currently Vice President. Tsadra has continued the translation work started by Kalu Rinpoche, and provides vital funding to the advancement of the study and practice of Tibetan Buddhism in the west.  Lama Drupgyu  lives in France and Canada, and divides his time between personal retreat, the work of Tsadra Foundation, and teaching advanced students of Vajrayana.
