Composed during the latter part of December and completed on New Year’s Day 2018, the starting point here is the four sādhanas (sādhana is a visualisation of a Buddha or Bodhisattva figure) Sangharakshita received from one of his teachers, Jamyang Khyentse Rimpoche: Mañjughoṣa, Avalokiteśvara, Vajrapāṇi, and Green Tārā, and their ‘correspondence’ (in the hermetic sense) with the lakṣaṇas, the samādhis, and the vimokṣas leading to a series of reflections on the Path of Beauty in western spiritual tradition and its relevance for Buddhists of today.

This piece is open to all and can be read on Sangharakshita’s website: Green Tārā and the Fourth Lakṣaṇa  along with other articles he has written.
