Love is the seed of this abundant harvest of buddhahood.
It is like the water which causes growth and expansion,
And it ripens into the state of lasting enjoyment,
Therefore at the outset I shall praise compassion!

MONTHLY TARA PUJA
Buddhist practice focuses on the perfection of generosity – one of six primary virtues – so we have structured the Centre to promote this virtue. There is no charge for the teachings and they are open to the public.
