Many of us our familiar with Green Tara and her practice, but may not know that Tara has 21 different emanations, as described in the “Praises to the Twenty-one forms of Tara”. Dagmo Kusho will be bestowing the 21 Tara Initiation in the morning. In the afternoon, she will give a teaching describing Tara’s 21 manifestations, each with her own mantra. There will be a short practice session during the teaching.
