Red Tara meditations have been used
to attain the recognition of our original, pure buddha nature through many perfect lineages of highly realized Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. Based on the treasure discovered by the great Nyingmapa lama, Apong Terton, this practice emphasizes the continual invocation of Tara's blessings to activate our innate buddha nature.

This 2 CD set includes both the Concise Practice, with mantras sung by His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinoche and students, and an audio book recording of Red Tara Commentary: Instructions for the Concise Practice Known as Red Tara: An Open Door to Bliss and Ultimate Awareness, compiled by his wife, Chagdud Khadro.
