The Eight Manifestations of Sherab Chamma

September 19, 2014 - September 21, 2014

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is known for his clear, warm approach to the teachings, and his ability to relate the teachings to our everyday lives. Join him for this weekend of teachings on the Eight Manifestations of Sherab Chamma.

Sherab Chamma, the Wisdom Loving Mother, is the embodiment of loving compassion. As an enlightened deity, she manifests in many different forms according to the needs of practitioners.

The eight manifestations that are the focus of this series of meditations are all peaceful forms that help us overcome and transform different types of struggles and fears, such as challenges with enemies, fears of illness, struggles with the unknown, and the fear of death.

Through the power of Sherab Chamma’s wisdom and love, our fears are transformed into self arising wisdom and we are able to creatively embrace the many challenges of our lives.
