HIGHLIGHT during the Manjushri Retreat
Kurukulle Empowerment and Bardo Teachings by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche
Online via streaming and ZOOM. Access data and translation links: SOON
Kurukulle, also known as Red Tara, is the female embodiment of enlightened wisdom. Her name literally means " she who is the cause of knowledge". Like all another emanations of Tara, she acts through the activities of compassion, in this case attracting and enchanting. Her ability to attract, magnetize, and enchant is an enlightened activity to direct practitioners' attention to the Dharma, bring happiness, and remove obstacles in the practice.
Bardo means intermediate state. It is a kind of transition where we have left one state but not yet arrived in another. The aim of the bardo is the liberation from the ordinary mind with all its delusions in order to attain awakening by purifying the negative karma and practicing Dharma. In principle, six different bardos or intermediate states are taught: bardo of life, bardo of dream, bardo of samadhi, bardo of dying, bardo of dharmata and bardo of becoming.
