Tara Chanting Prayers and Candlelight Meditation
31st December 2017
Tara Chanting Prayers
“Tara” means “Rescuer”. Tara is a female Buddha, a wisdom Buddha of active compassion.
If we rely upon Mother Tara sincerely and with strong faith, she will protect us from all obstacles and fulfil all our wishes. Since she is a wisdom Buddha, and since she is a manifestation of the completely purified wind element, Tara is able to help us very quickly. If we recite the twenty-one verses of praise we shall receive inconceivable benefits. These praises are very powerful because they are Sutra, the actual words of Buddha.
