The nuns that reside in Mainpat need your help to eliminate the hardships of poverty so they can prosper in the spiritual and educational surroundings of Ven. Tsori Rinpoche's School and orphanage.
Your sponsorship provides spiritual training, general education, living accommodations, medical care & other basic necessities.The nuns in turn preserve the living heritage of Tibetan Buddhism through their practices.
This project supports the construction of a school at the Tibetan Refugee Camp in Mainpat, India to support, clothe, feed and educate little girls. There is no greater gift than education. The young girls are currently struggling to receive any form of education at the Tibetan Refugee Camp. But this is about to change.
I would like to dedicate this Green Tara project to Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, who has inspired me in so many ways, and who is instrumental in empowering Tibetan women. This nunnery is dedicated to her immense support to the Tibetan women.
I highly recomment reading her books 'Into the Heart of Life' and REFLECTIONS ON A MOUNTAIN LAKE -
Teachings on Practical Buddhism
by Venerable Tenzin Palmo

GREEN TARA is about to empower young Tibetan women with Education, practice and support for all basic needs (clothing, shoes, and food), the little girls are given a chance to a bright future. The sponsorship costs 83 cents a day for someone's future!
The Green Tara project was started in January 2010 to incorporate little girls into the monastery. The nunnery will provide education and dharma practice for hundreds of little girls who are struggling to get any form of education at the camp. The school is currently under construction.
Thank you in advance for your generosity! Your help is very much appreciated!
TARE means liberating from samsara. This samsara means these aggregates: the aggregate of form, or the physical body; of feeling; of recognition; of karmic formations; and of consciousness.
OM is a variation of the romanized spelling for Aum. It is made up of the three syllabus of A, U and Ma, the universal trinity.
TARE shows that Mother Tara liberates living beings... from samsara, from true suffering, or problems. You can relate this to the particular sufferings of human beings: birth, old age, sickness and death; meeting undesirable objects and experiencing aversion; not finding desirable objects or finding them but gaining no satisfaction. No matter how much pleasure you enjoy, there is no satisfaction. No matter how much you follow desire, there is no satisfaction at all.
TUTTARE liberates you from the eight fears. There are eight fears related to external dangers from fire, water, air, earth, and also from such things as thieves and dangerous animals. However, the main dangers come from ignorance, attachment, anger, pride, jealousy, miserliness, doubt and wrong views. These eight disturbing thoughts that you have in your mind are the main dangers. By taking refuge in Tara and doing Tara practice, you are liberated from these eight internal dangers, these eight disturbing thoughts. In this way, you are also liberated from external dangers, as these external dangers come from the inner disturbing thoughts.
TURE liberates you from disease. Now, of the Four Noble Truths, TURE shows the cessation of suffering, which is the ultimate Dharma. In terms of liberating from disease, the actual disease we have is ignorance not knowing the absolute nature of the I, and all the disturbing thoughts that arise from this ignorance. These are the actual, serious diseases that we have. With cessation of all these diseases of disturbing thoughts, all the true sufferings, all the resultant problems, are also ceased. By liberating us from disease, TURE actually liberates us from the true cause, disturbing thoughts, and also the true sufferings.
The rough meaning of these three words TARE TUTTARE TURE is: "To you, embodiment of all the Buddhas' actions, I prostrate always whether I am in happy or unhappy circumstances with my body, speech and mind."
The final word SOHA means establishing the root of the path within your heart. In other words, by taking refuge in Tara and doing Tara practice, you receive the blessings of Tara in your own heart. This gives you space to establish the root of the path, signified by TARE TUTTARE TURE in your heart. By establishing the path of the three capable beings within your heart, you purify all impurities of your body, speech and mind, and achieve Tara's pure vajra holy body, holy speech and holy mind, which are signified by OM. Your body, speech and mind are transformed into Tara's holy body, holy speech and holy mind. This is the rough meaning of OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA.
SOHA, Svaha and Swahah are just variations in Romanized spellings. It also means 'so be it' or 'hail'.
