21 Tara Practice, a retreat with Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche

21 Tara Practice, the Essence of Compassion
A Retreat with Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche

12 – 19 March 2021

Embedded in the teaching and practice of Tara is a practical way to a life of love. It covers all the trainings of the Six Paramitas and reveals the profound Vajrayana view of Lama, Yiddam and Khandro. In short Tara is an explanation of an expansive view of compassion and wisdom.

Rinpoche has studied and practiced the 21 Taras all his life starting in childhood. This is a good opportunity to engage in this practice.

The course is intended for those who have some experience and familiarity with the Buddhist path and in particular for those who feel a connection with Amnyi Trulchung Rinpoche. For those newly curious about Buddhism, this isn’t the best place to start.


Rinpoche freely offers the teaching for dana (donation). Your generosity supports his teaching.

$615 for seven days accommodation, food and cook’s fee.
