Green Tara Retreat

Lama Nyigyam

  See the Program for this Retreat


From Tuesday, August 13 to Sunday, August 18

Known as the Liberator, Tara is the female personification of spontaneous activity of the Buddhas.  Her meditation protects from fear, removes obstacles for oneself and others, leading to enlightenment.  Lama Nyigyam will provide instructions for this practice and on the twenty-one praises;  he will also guide the practice sessions.


Lama Nyigyam

After having passed numerous years in retreat, Lama Nygyam lived in Shamar Rinpoche's Swayambhu monastery in Nepal. Shamar Rinpoche then selected him along with eight other practitioners to carry out a ten-year Mahamudra meditation retreat, at the conclusion of which he began to direct the three-year retreat center in Parping, Nepal.
