White Tara
Noble Arya Tara is a Buddha who in earlier times promised to always be born in the pure form of a female body in order to help living beings reach enlightenment. There are many outer and inner impediments that practitioners encounter, so we visualize Arya Tara in order to eliminate hindrances and obstacles on the path to liberation from suffering. It is said that White Tara will protect one from an untimely death, which enables one to practice the Dharma longer in this life. She is the very essence of healing serenity. It is crucial to have empowerment and correct instruction from a qualified teacher like Ven. Khenpo Jigme to practice successfully.

Venerable Lama Khenpo Jigme was born in Bhutan and entered Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche’s main monastery, Tashi Chöling in Boudhanath, Nepal. Highly skilled in Buddhist philosophy, ritual and meditation, Ven. Khenpo Jigme was appointed by Thrangu Rinpoche to teach at Namo Buddha and Vajra Vidya Institutes and to become resident lama at Rinpoche’s Vajra Vidya Institute in Crestone, Colorado. Much admired for his erudition and incisive intellect, he is loved by a wide number of students in the West for his gentle nature and charming good humor.
