HISTORY: Tara Dance Sangha of Atlanta is a member of the parent organization, Tara Dhatu.  Tara Dhatu is an international, non-profit organization dedicated to empowering and uplifting humanity through the sacred arts.

The organization was formed at the request of His Eminence Tai Situ Rinpoche, an accomplished and revered Tibetan Buddhist master.  He had witnessed the Dance of the 21 Praises of Tara, choreographed by one of his students, Prema Dasara.  He asked that an organization be established to protect the dance's integrity as a Vehicle of Liberation.  He rejoiced in witnessing the devotion and peace transmitted by the dance and encouraged it to be broadcast, in video and in communal celebrations.

Since 1985, the dance has traveled throughout the world.  A series of DVDs have been made and the organization has grown to sponsor workshops and trainings in the Tara Dance and other Dharma Dances - offering celebrations, pilgrimages of citizen diplomacy, and an array of Humanitarian Projects seeking to benefit the Tibetans-in-exile and other groups in need.  The Tara Dance has been offered to many great Tibetan Teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama.  The Tara Dance has been performed by thousands of women of all ages, nationalities, and walks of life.

Prema Dasara, the creatrix of the Tara Dance and the Spiritual and Creative Director of Tara Dhatu, Anahata Iradah, the Artistic Director of Tara Dhatu, and an array of international Student Teachers maintain an ongoing schedule of international classes and offerings.



 Mother, Protector, Tara

May the blessings of the Dance of the Great Goddess Tara, and the profound Mind Training practices of Tibetan Buddhism that infuse it with meaning, travel far, awakening all to the glory of their own enlightened potential.
