Book launch and celebration with Tempa Lama: Heart Drop of the Loving Mother


Join us to celebrate the release of Tempa Lama’s special new book, Heart Drop of the Loving Mother. Tempa Lama will give a short talk on his new book, followed by a celebration with refreshments and snacks.

Friday, June 6, 7-8pm, Olmo Ling Bon Center, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh PA 15217.

In Heart Drop of the Loving Mother, Tempa Dukte Lama opens the door to the practice of embodying the Great Loving Mother, known in Tibetan Bön as Sherab Jamma, the female Buddha of love and wisdom. The Loving Mother is the mother of all. She is the source of our wisdom and wholesome aspiration. She is the ceaseless source of compassion, skillful means, and power. Through these qualities, the Loving Mother nurtures all beings without hindrance. She is clarity without obstacles. She is the awakened nature of all beings. She is love because she wants all beings to be happy. She is compassion because she wants all beings to be free from suffering. She is presence because she is always there, offering us strength, protection, and clarity.

The Heart Drop of the Loving Mother Practice helps us connect with our primordial capacity to love and care unconditionally for one another and for ourselves. If we take some time for this practice every day, it will deeply transform us. The true quality of the Loving Mother is within us from beginningless time, and it will be there forever. Practicing the Loving Mother means that we recognize this quality within ourselves. Based on this recognition we nurture it and finally use it as a skillful means of refuge and protection for the self and others.
