Yamantaka Initiation from Tara Tulku (1988)



The following article is from the Spring, 1988 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

Tara Tulku Rinpoche will -give the Yamantaka initiation as part of a weeklong visit to Gaden Tenzin Ling (GTL), Tibetan Buddhist Center of Ithaca, New York (also home of Snow Lion Publications). The dates of the initiation, including preliminary teachings, are April 30 to May 2, with other teachings before and after.

A Yamantaka retreat next summer (August 12 to 21), including intensive teachings and practice, will be offered at GTL by its director, Zasep Tulku Rinpoche. Anyone with the initiation, from Tara Rinpoche or others, is welcome to attend.

All this will happen in GTL's wonderful new Dharma center in the hills overlooking Ithaca. Since last summer, it has already been honored by visits from His Holiness Ganden Tri Rinpoche, the Venerable Thupten Pende and Alex Berzin. Zasep Rinpoche, in regular visits from his home base in Toronto, has recently lead Vajra Yogini and Shamatha retreats there.

Anybody interested in these or other GTL activities should contact Sidney or Jeff at Snow Lion Publications, 607-273-8506, or write Gaden Tenzin Ling, PO Box 6761, Ithaca, New York 14851.
