An hour before Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche arrived, the 21 Noble Taras took their places in Khadro Ling’s Tara Garden. Many aspects of the garden remain to be completed, but our happiness in that moment was full and fully dedicated.
This Tara Garden arose from an aspiration and has generated a life of its own. So many people have made offerings of talent and money, and even the workers seem inspired! Each step of the construction brings new vistas. May sacred connection to our 21 Noble Ladies, the Arya Taras, enhance the joy and inner peace of all who have offered and all who will visit.
During the annual Vajrakilaya Drubchen at Khadro Ling, Jigme Tromge Rinpoche will offer transmission of a rare extensive commentary written by Khenpo Ahchö, who attained rainbow body in 1998.
The long-planned Garden of the 21 Taras at Chagdud Gonpa Khadro Ling is manifesting now, and the beautiful stone-carved deities should soon find their appropriate environment. They will be arranged in a mandala surrounded by a garden of flowers and flowering trees beside Khadro Ling’s main temple. Gochen Sang-ngak Rinpoche consecrated the site, and we hope that Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche will be able to consecrate the completed installation in June. ∞ More
