What you'll learn in this meditation class:

White Tara (Tib. Drolkar) is one of the leading 'Long Life Buddhas' in Tibetan Buddhism. Among Tibetan Buddhists it is believed that the seven eyes (face, palms and soles) of White Tara enable her to clearly see all beings in the realms of existence, and help them with her wisdom and compassion. It is said that White Tara's meditation practice (that you will also do this weekend) can help to overcome obstacles (such as life-threatening illnesses) as well as help to extend your life. 

The practice can also be done on behalf of someone else. Another beautiful ritual is to offer a White Tara thangka image to the family of a newborn baby for wishes of a long life ahead for the child. Drawing these enlightened images is a meditation in itself and creates joy. Through a combination of drawing, presentations, lectures and meditations you will discover the background and symbolism of White Tara, and experience the meditational way of drawing thangka. 

You will also learn the meaning of White Tara's mantra and learn how to work with it. This will give your drawing so much more depth. If you are a Buddhist practitioner, drawing the Buddha image significantly improves visualization in your meditations.
