This practice is designed to nourish you, help you release anxiety, heal emotional and physical wounds, and open you to your awakened nature. You’ll connect with yourself and Tara in loving, open awareness, and learn to do this on your own so that Tara is always accessible to you.

All the great Tibetan masters call upon and meditate extensively on Tara. Over many centuries, this meditation has proven to be as valuable for men as it is for women, who all report that their lives completely changed through their Tara practice.

You’ll also learn about how Tara’s essence is manifest as her seed syllable, which serves as her “cosmic texting address,” and as her mantra, which can be likened to an instant email address. And you’ll explore how to navigate working with a buddha — an awakened being.

Module 5: Stepping Fully Into the Awakened Presence
Step 5 of the Tara Meditation

You’ll also experience the powerful liberation of transitioning from meditation with form to meditation without form, and explore the benefits of both. And, you’ll experience letting go into openness and love, and resting in open awareness.

The Spiritual Path
Audio Teaching With Lama Palden Drolma


In this audio teaching, Lama Palden leads an opening meditation for people who have never meditated before.

Personal Journey & the Ego
Audio Teaching With Lama Palden Drolma


In this talk from Lama Palden, she describes her love for spirituality and how she came to Buddhism as a student and teacher. As a teen, she noticed the lack of “meaning” in the culture and in people’s lives — having grown up in an upper-middle-class family where everything looked perfect and everyone was miserable. She noticed something didn’t quite add up for her as far as this lifestyle being the achievement of “the American Dream.” As a teen, she was exposed to many progressive ideas, which allowed her to go deeply into studying and seeing to the heart of the religions she studied.

The English word “merit” is defined as being or doing something that is worthy and creates value. It’s said that when we meditate or engage in another form of spiritual practice, such as yoga, chanting, praying, or singing songs of realization, we are accumulating merit.
