The Practice of Green Tara and Her Twenty-One Manifestations

The practice of Green Tara is widespread among all schools and traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. The specific practice used within the international Dzogchen Community is based on a terma of Adzom Drugpa, and uses application methods from Yogatantra and Anuyoga.

Tara embodies the compassion, the energy and the wisdom of all realized beings. She is considered to be the mother of all Buddhas, and she personifies the perfection of wisdom. As a manifestation of the pure state of the air element, Tara is famous for her capacity of acting quickly and for granting us salvation when we are in great difficulty.

Oliver Leick has been a student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu's since 1977. Oliver is the Director of the International Shang Shung Institute, and a member of the Board of Directors of the International Atiyoga Foundation. In 2002, Oliver Leick became an authorized first level Yantra Yoga instructor, and in 2010 he also became an authorized Santi Maha Sangha (SMS) Base instructor. Oliver has led more than 130 seminars, courses and public talks in different countries all over the world.

A text-file of a book on Tara compiled by Oliver Leick will be the base of Oliver's explanation. As decided by the Namkhai family this text will be available exclusively for retreat participants. One may obtain this text for a donation to the Ka-Ter project. If you would like to order the file pleas email
