Tibetan (or Vajrayana) Buddhists regard White Tara one of 21 emanations of the Goddess Tara, Mother of all Buddhas, who has the power of granting longevity. She is also the goddess who represents the motherly aspect of compassion, and helps in overcoming life’s obstacles. Her white color signifies purity, wisdom and truth. She embodies the divine female principle.
At the age of six Tulku Dawa Gyalpo Rinpoche joined Penor Rinpoche’s Namdroling Monastery in Bylakuppe, South India. Upon finishing his basic monastic education, and completing the nine-year course in both sutra and tantra, Rinpoche was appointed the head of Tsogyal Shedrup Dhargyeling nunnery and also taught at the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute. Rinpoche currently lives and teaches in Toronto.
