Green Tara Prayers – Liberation from Sorrow

Green Tara is the female Buddha of active compassion. As the manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas, Tara is known as the ‘Mother of the Conquerors’. She is also revered as the ‘Great Liberator’ who pacifies all sickness, poverty, misfortune, fighting and quarrelling, and causes the Dharma and all good fortune to flourish.

Tara’s green-coloured body symbolizes that she is also the manifestation of the fully purified wind element of all the Buddhas, and like the wind is quick to respond to the prayers of those in need. Her right leg extended indicates her readiness to help others. Many of the pictures of Tara  show her seated on a lotus arising from a lake. It is said that when Compassion Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, saw the immensity of suffering in the world he started crying, and Tara was born from a lotus that arose from his lake of tears.

We engage in Tara prayers – Liberation from Sorrow, on Tara Day – the eighth day of each month. Everyone is welcome to join us for Tara prayers.
This month they are on-line.
