10 Million Tara Mantra Recitations

The Multi-state Green Tara Recitation Count to Mitigate Global Warming 

Dec 2022 - April 2023

Mantra Count


4,724,491


(total updated daily)

Scientists tell us that to avoid the worst impacts of global warming, we must globally achieve net-zero carbon emissions no later than 2050.


To do this, the world must immediately act to reduce carbon emissions from all sectors. There’s now many promising ways to achieve that goal, yet success requires a higher than usual level of global cooperation and coordination. We have only a small window of time to act.


We can “take action”, as His Holiness the Dalai Lama asks of us, by engaging in this collective group count. We request Tara for her help to remove obstacles and for the success of these efforts. 


Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Jampa recently gave his blessings for a collective group effort of 10 Million Tara mantra count dedicated to the mitigation of global warming.


You are invited to join -- any amount counts!

“Every individual should act to save the Earth from climate change”

Long Life for Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche

To bring blessings of enlightened activities to fortunate disciples,

And to spread the textual and inner realization teachings of the Buddha,

Who embodies the ten powers, you show the light of logic in teachings to intelligent minds.

O spiritual guide, revealer of the path, I pray to you! Please remain.

 

Long Life for His Holiness Dalai Lama

In the land encircled by snow mountains,

You are the source of all happiness and good.

All-powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso,

Please remain until samsara ends.

 

Prayer that Spontaneously Fulfills All Wishes 

Savior of the Land of Snow teachings and transmigratory beings, 

Who extensively clarifies the path that unifies emptiness and compassion, 

To the Lotus Holder, Tenzin Gyatso, I beseech. 

May all your holy wishes be spontaneously fulfilled.
