Dancing Tara with this new community was filled with many surprises and delights.
You can get a taste through this photo essay….
The biggest gift was meeting, dancing for and receiving teachings from Gyatrul Rinpoche. Rinpoche has a great sense of humor and he joked with us from the moment we arrived. We spent half an hour trading insults and then we asked if we could offer him the White Tara Dance of the Six Shields. He sat quietly watching and then after the dance he spoke from the heart, to us. It was very moving. When we asked if we could record his teachings he agreed but admonished us…..this is not some big teachings for some big publication…..this is heart to heart, for family. And so dear readers, who are in so many ways our dharma family, I share it with you.
