Australian Dharma Celebration 2022

White Tara Empowerment & The Healing Power of Meditation

White Tara is a female enlightened being who helps us ‘as swiftly as the wind
moves’. Her function is to bestow long life, wisdom and good fortune. It is said that those who rely upon her are protected from danger and disease.

At the 2022 Australian Dharma Celebration, the NKT National Spiritual Director for Australia, Gen Kelsang Rabten, will grant the blessing empowerment of White Tara. Take a break from ordinary appearances and be guided on a meditative journey to the enlightened world of white Tara.

Gen Rabten will then explain how to heal the body and mind through developing deep inner peace in teachings on the healing power of meditation.
