Golden Tara #3 of 21 Tara’s Practice and Commentary

August 4th, 2022

The Practice of Golden Tara 

#3 of the 21 Tara’s 

Golden Tara is all about realizing your life purpose. She is all about the 6 paramitas or perfections. Generosity, joyful effort, discipline, calm, patience, and meditation. It is thought in Vrajayana Buddhism and this female enlightenment Practice that integrating and realizing the 6 Paramitas, is a sign of enlightenment or awakened awareness. The Blue Lotus of the 3rd emanation represents Self Born Wisdom and the blue pearls are wish fulling, increasing or merit granting jewels of non dual or Tantric awareness. This golden Tara increases life force both physically and spiritually, aiding those that do the Golden Tara practices to bond with the inner perfections and the strength, love and compassion of Tara.

Melissa Abbott gives an audio teaching and commentary of this powerful feminine enlightenment Practice. The path of a woman can look very different from a man’s or patriarchal experience and the 21 Tara’s Practices are exceptional and extraordinary. This 60 min listen would be best done in a quiet place where you can check ncentrate and imbibe fully.

Red Swift Courageous Tara Practice

June 28th, 2022

Red Swift Courageous Tara Practice

This is an overview and practice Sadhana of  Red Swift Courageous Tara, the first of the 21 Taras Practice.

When you get overwhelmed, angry, or downright livid about the the state of our world these days, that is a signal that you do indeed have valid concerns. These are very transforming times we live in and on the spiritual level, how exactly do we work within ourselves and the energies at large. How do we work to change things. The truth is, that it all starts within. Any kind of Goddess Practice ( your choice) can be very uplifting not only for yourself but sets up a ripple effect in the world around you. 
The 21 Taras Sadhana or Practice is from Tantric Tibetan Buddhism and was brought to Tibet, firstly,  by Padma Sambhava about 1200 years ago and then again 200 years later by the Bengali scholar Atisha. 
It is a feminine enlightenment practice where prayers, mantras, visualizations are installed within the practitioner,  in a practice Sadhana. Each one of the 21 Taras Mandala, works with different energies that we may come up against in our daily evolution. Red Swoft Courageous Tara is perfect for the energies of right now as we come to terms with many social injustices such as Supreme Court rulings, school shootings, and the war in Ukraine. 
Thank you for listening and just know, this practice is not just for you, but when you practice it, it gravitates out to everyone around you. 
Check out my website melissaabbott.com or email me if you are interested in my upcoming 21 Taras practice group coming up online and in person in the Boston Area during the Fall of 2022 melissa@melissaabbott.com

Namaste, Melissa

Mandala of the Five Dakini’s Meditation - Full Practice

March 2nd, 2022

Mandala of the Five Dakini’s Meditation

Full Practice

This is a recording of a complete 5 Dakini Meditation Practice Session at the end of a 6 week study (recorded by Melissa Abbott during a zoom call at my friend Jo Haight Sarling’s home in Cocoa Beach, FL.), from a book study and meditation practice group studying the book “ Wisdom Rising” The Mandala of the Empowered Feminine, by Lama Tsultrim Allione. In the first 5 weeks we have studied the individual practices, attributes and states of each of the 5 Dakini’s. Sounding their Seed Syllables and embodying their attributes in meditation as a way of transformation burning through encumbered states of being, resulting in a more expanded unencumbered wisdom consciousness of each Dakini, week by week.  This is a Tibetan Buddhist Tantric Practice brought from India to Tibet about 800ad by Guru Rinpoche or Padma Sambhava. 

the Mandala as a cosmological system, and through the Mandala we experience the encumbered and transformed unencumbered states of the Dakinis (which are aspects of the sacred feminine). The Mandala being the one ground and the practice is an uncovering of our own enlightened awareness and transformation into enlightened presence.

Its been a beautiful journey learning the 5 Dakini Practices with all of the participants around the world including UK, Switzerland, and Argentina. Thank you for your involvements, synergy, focus, love, and interest. Special Thanks to Jo Haight Surling for having the practice at her home in Cocoa Beach and helping me coordinate the process. There really is something special about practicing in a group.

The Five Dakini’s practices work with transforming encumbered energies ( Samskaras) such as  procrastination, neediness, envy, jealousy, anger, fear etc into “The Wisdom Energies of the Dakinis evolved/transformed/manifersted to an unencumbered view”. The mandala/circle, elemental energies, directional energies, visualization, seed syllables, Uccara, etc are used in the Dakini practices.

Ultimately, the absolute level is beyond gender, how on a relative level men and women get to the ultimate level may be very different paths. Women have long thought they have to act like men to attain anything in this world. The cultural messages truly effect and disempower women on so many levels.

The Dakini is a messenger of spasciousness, a force of truth, a transitional primal power, a fierce compassion for change and upliftment.  I believe the recognition of feminine empowerment holds a key to cultural evolution and that awareness of practices line the Five Dakini’s .

I highly recommend you get the book and read it, until you get the book, tho, it is all right to come and practice and get a taste of it and see if it is for you. It is exciting work

I ask that we practice not only for ourselves but for the benefit of all.

Green Karma Dakini Practice

January 19th, 2022

Enlightened Feminine Empowerment Green Karma Dakini Meditation Practice

This is a portion of the Five Dakini Practice that assists you to transform encumbered states of consciousness, such as jealousy, competitiveness, envy, speediness, workaholic tendencies, and ambition, to all- accomplishing wisdom. 

You will visualize the Green Dakini and intensify your encumbered states to a powerful expanded and empowered dissolution of non-striving. 

This is from the practices of the Five Dakini’s from the “ Wisdom Rising” book by Lama Tsultrim Allione.  These practices come down to us from a Tibetan Tantric Buddhism female practitioner named Machig Lapdron and are over 1000 years old. 

 
The Five Dakini’s practices work with transforming encumbered energies ( Samskaras) such as  procrastination, neediness, envy, jealousy, anger, fear etc into “The Wisdom Energies of the Dakinis evolved unencumbered view”.
