Our hearts are saddened to hear for Margo’s passing and warmed to hear of the love and tenderness that held her in her passing.
We offer the following meditation – from Chagdud Rinpoche’s Red Tara practice – as a jewel to hold in our hearts in moments whenever Margo comes to mind.
May her life, teachings, and presence in our lives inspire us all to live with ever deepening spirits devoted to awaken our selves in service of awakening all beings to their True Nature and Highest Potentials.

Tara Meditation for the Dead & Dying
From the Buddhist Tradition
From Tara’s heart—or from the heart of any Great Spiritual Being with whom you feel a close connection
(the Buddha, Christ, Quan Yin, etc.)
rainbow light shines
forth throughout the six realms and the bardo, enveloping the deceased ones wherever they are,
purifying their karma, and
infusing them with Tara’s radiant blessing.
Their forms become brilliant spheres of light
and dissolve into Tara’s heart-mind —
a realm beyond the cycles of suffering,
a realm of absolute purity and bliss.
Meditate in this way during the forty-nine days after death,
dedicating the merit of your practice to the deceased.
