Eight Manifestations of Sherap Chamma, Pt. 1
Tenzin Rinpochewith Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche
September 20-22, 2013

Sherab Chamma, the Wisdom Loving Mother, is the embodiment of loving compassion. As an enlightened deity, she manifests in many different forms according to the needs of practitioners. The eight manifestations that are the focus of this series of meditations are all peaceful forms that help us overcome and transform different types of struggles and fears, such as challenges with enemies, fears of illness, struggles with the unknown, and the fear of death. Through the power of Sherap Chamma’s wisdom and love, our fears are transformed into self arising wisdom and we are able to creatively embrace the many challenges of our lives.

Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche is known for his clear, warm approach to the teachings, and his ability to relate the teachings to our every day lives.  We are very pleased that he has chosen Chamma Ling, the Land of the Loving Mother, as the site for his first wisdom teachings of the Eight Manifestations of Sherap Chamma. Rinpoche will teach on the Eight Manifestations of Chamma at Chamma Ling in both 2013 and 2014.
