Green Tara is the embodiment of
enlightened wisdom energy, she
represents both nurturance and
protection from danger and illness.
 
For the past twenty years the Center for Contemplative Science and Compassion-Based Ethics (CCSCBE, formerly the Emory-Tibet Partnership) has facilitated Tibet Week at Emory University.
 
A time to celebrate Tibetan culture, Tibet Week provides a chance to acknowledge our Tibetan collaborators and partner organizations and the impact that the Tibetan tradition has had on their programs. It is also an opportunity to honor the special relationship that Emory and our center in Atlanta (Drepung Loseling Monastery Inc.) has with His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
 
While Tibet Week 2020 (March 23-27) has been cancelled, as an offering of well-being to Emory and our worldwide community, CCSCBE have requested the Drepung Loseling monks of the Mystical Arts of Tibet to continue with the creation of a sand mandala.
 
In response to COVID-19, His Holiness the Dalai Lama has recommended the practice of Green Tara for solace in this time of uncertainty. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Green Tara is regarded as the embodiment of enlightened wisdom energy. The name “Tara” means “the liberator mother” and she represents both nurturance and protection from danger and illness.
