What is the Structure of the Tara’s Triple Excellence (TTE) Program?
The First Excellence
Fundamental Mind Training
In the First Excellence, the Theravada Path, we build the foundation for all future practices. Step by step we learn about the suffering and the flaws of samsara. We acknowledge some uncomfortable aspects of life and start taking them into our hearts. Using the Theravada point of view, we discover the causes of our negative emotions and strive to abandon harmful beliefs and habits.
The Second Excellence
The Bodhisattva Path of Love & Insight
In the Second Excellence, the Mahayana Path, we expand the scope of our mind and heart through developing impartial loving kindness and compassion. The meditation trainings dissolve rigid selfishness and make the mind calmer and kinder. With the skills accumulated over the months of contemplations, we come to understand that our illusory emotions can be easily transformed.
The Third Excellence
The Secret Path of the Tantras
In the Third Excellence, we meet the mystical world of the Tantrayana Path where training is combined with profound meditation instructions, Tara sadhanas, the traditional preliminary practices and more. The Tantrayana has uniquely effective meditation techniques including: visualization, mantra recitation, devotion, and Guru Yoga, which are explained in precise detail. These are the tools we use to realize that the true essence of negative emotions is the wisdom of realization.
A Complete Practice Session Every Day.
Four preliminary practices, which help focus your mind and open your heart. Main practice sessions (one morning and one evening) guide the practitioner, step-by-step, into a deeper relationship with the Buddha’s teachings. Dedication of merit — the goodness, or virtue, which you have gathered by working to uncover your compassionate heart in order to help others Mindfulness instructions, which offers different ways to integrate the contemplations into your daily life are pragmatic and can be applied to your daily life.
