The PDC Remains closed to in-person gatherings

In compassionate regard for our Sangha and community, the PDC has decided to remain closed to in-person gatherings until such time as the current pandemic is under control. We continue to teach Dharma online several times each week. Below, you can find our current Dharma teaching schedule.

DZOGCHEN BUDDHA PATH

GLOBAL TARA EVENT

May 6 – 10, 2021 (Taiwan)

A Global Online Blessing Ceremony

of the 10,000 Offerings to the 21 Noble Taras

Join us online to experience the healing power of love and compassion.

Transforming Global Obstacles Into Global Opportunity

This auspicious public internet event is our fourth annual celebration of the healing and blessing power of Noble Arya Tara, who vowed to remain in female form as long as beings need liberation from fear, anger, worry, violence, and the causes of hunger, war, and disease. Such great auspicious practices occur only rarely. Thus, please join us online for this extraordinary event! Registration is required. Registration fees are on a sliding scale and include all members of the household. Funds raised support the Dharma activities of the Holy Vajra Master and create tremendous merit.

The ongoing pandemic crisis makes it even more urgent that we gather online to overcome widespread suffering and to create peace and happiness in this world. Please join us this year during Mother’s Day Weekend (United States) to transform global obstacles into a worldwide celebration of the power of love, compassion, and peace.

The auspicious opportunity to celebrate the extraordinary qualities of Noble Arya Tara coincides this year with the American celebration of Mother’s Day. There is no better way to honor our mothers and become positive conditions for the peace and happiness of all kind mother beings, than to pray to Our Great Compassionate Mother Tara!
