You do not need to be present while the puja or spiritual practice is performed. We provide your full name to the monk.

In Tibetan, Tara is known as 'Dolma' or 'She who Saves'. Specifically, she represents compassion in action since she is in the process of stepping from her lotus throne in order to help sentient beings. She brings about longevity, protects earthly travel, stimulates success in jobs and business undertakings, and guards her followers on their spiritual journey to enlightenment. She is believed to help her followers overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties; and she is especially worshiped for her ability to overcome the most difficult situations.
We periodically plant trees for all pujas performed on behalf of those prayed for. We do this through AmericanForests.org, and non-profit dedicated to reforestation, reducing global warming and increasing habitat for animals living in the wild.
This puja is a combination of purification practices, reciting many times the praises to the 21 Taras, mandala offerings and recitation of the Foundation of All Good Qualities. This puja also requires the creation of a ritual cake (Torma) for offering to Tara.
