White Tara, Cintamani Cakra, is a refuge for all sentient beings and can guide everyone to the island of blissful liberation. She is known as the Giver of Life. The practice of White Tara brings long life, subdues illness, evil spirits, and negative karma, and clears away mental obscurations and obstacles in one’s life.
Her Eminence Dagmo Kusho Sakya was born in Kham, Eastern Tibet. As the niece of one of the most highly realized Sakya Masters of the twentieth century, H.E. Dezhung Rinpoche III, her training in Buddhist practice began at an early age.

Jigdal Dagchen Sakya of the Khön lineage, a Head Lama of the Sakya order of Tibetan Buddhism. Dagmola specializes in Tara empowerments, practices, and teachings, and has many students throughout the world.
