Om Tare..Tuttare Ture Svaha
Tara.. the wondrous female Buddha.
Tara, whose name means star, embodies the sacred feminine energy found in all of us. Viewed like a brilliant light shining in the darkness, Tara is the female compliment of Chenresig, the Buddha of Love and compassion. Tara is the all-encompassing, nurturing mother figure.
Oh Tara, holy liberator, swift acting mother,
pray and invoke your blessings.
Please watch over us, protect us, and hold us in your
Green Tara is often depicted with one leg out of
the lotus position, extended down for a quick and decisive response when needed.
Green Tara acts swiftly - like a lioness protecting her cubs.
They say in Tibet, that if you learn just one thing in Tibetan, it should be how to get her attention quickly by calling out..
'Tara Kye Kyenno'
O compassionate and venerable subduing
May the infinite beings, including myself,
Soon purify the two obscurations and complete both collections
So that we may gain full enlightenment.
For all my lives, until I reach this stage,
May I know the happiness of humans and gods.
So that I may become fully omniscient,
Please pacify quickly all obstacles, spirits,
Obstructions, epidemics, diseases and so forth,
The various causes of untimely death,
Bad dreams and omens, the eight fears and other afflictions
And make it so they no longer exist.
May the mundane and supramundane collections
Of all excellent and auspicious qualities and happiness
Increase and develop and may all wishes
Be fulfilled naturally and effortlessly, without an exception.
May I strive to realize and increase the sacred Dharma
Accomplishing your stage and beholding your sublime face.
May my understanding of emptiness and the precious dedicated heart
Increase like the moon waxing full.
May I be reborn from an extremely beautiful and holy lotus
In the joyous and noble mandala of the conqueror.
May I attain whatever prophecy I receive
In the presence of Amitabha, Buddha of infinite light.
O deity, whom I have accomplished from previous lives
The enlightening influence of the three-time Buddhas
Blue-green, one face and two arms, the swift pacifier
O mother, holding an utpala flower, may you be auspicious!
Whatever your body, O Mother of Conquerors,
Whatever your retinue, life span and pure land,
May I and all others attain only these.
By the force of these praises and requests made to you,
May all disease, poverty, fighting and quarrels be calmed,
May the precious Dharma and everything auspicious increase
Throughout the world and directions where I and all others dwell.
