There are few better ways to give ourselves a break from routine and rethink our priorities than by taking part in a meditation retreat. On retreat we stop all forms of ‘busyness’ and everyday activity in order to focus deeply on a specific spiritual theme or practice. Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre offers retreats that range in length from half a day to a full weekend, and are suited to different levels of experience. Whether you are a complete beginner or a more experienced practitioner, please feel welcome to join us for one of our in-house or country retreats.

24-Hour Tara Retreat @ Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre
Aug 30 – Aug 31 all-day

Green Tara 3_transparent

Every year many Kadampa Buddhists set aside 24 hours to make prayers and sing the praises of Tara, a female wisdom Buddha.

Tara is our Buddha mother and she can assist us in swiftly overcoming our obstacles and developing inner peace and happiness.

In this retreat we will complete six sessions of Tara prayers over 24 hours. You are welcome to join us for as many sessions as you like.

Each session will last about an hour.  Everyone is welcome to attend any or all of the sessions.

“Through the force of my making these praises and requests to you,
Please pacify all sickness, poverty, misfortune, fighting and quarrelling,
Throughout all directions where I and others live,
And cause the Dharma and all good fortune to flourish.”
