Yesterday I was invited to give a talk on Tara and Kuan Yin at Kuan Yin Temple, Chokchai 4. This is part of the 21-day celebration of the Great Pagoda of 10,000 Buddhas.
A different manifestation, Kuan Yin (Avalokiteshvara) is one and same essence as Tara. We perceive them differently because of our conceptual minds but all Buddhas are of the same nature. Om Mani Peme Hung!
We also talked about the law of karma and the duty of being born a human. It’s essential for all of us to accumulate merit, not to harm animals, and to perform all kinds of good deeds. We have no time to waste, as life is full of uncertainties. There’s no guarantee that we will be born a human again.
Pandara wishes to thank the Venerable Great Master, Ven. Bhukkhuni Dr. Lee and all Kuan Yin devotees who were present at the talk yesterday for their kind donation of 10,100 baht for the Tara Great Stupa project.
