Red Tara (Drolma Marmo) . She is one of the 21 Taras and Tara is the mother of all sentient beings. Red Tara is particularly beneficial for removing obstacles, increasing wealth and gives longevity. It comes from the Drupthap Kundu, a collection of 14 Volumes of Sakya Teachings. It is a simple practice that is similar to Jetsun Drolma (Green Tara) practice. A short practice of Red Tara with her mantra will be distributed to participants.
