Sacred Source -Tara

Home Order

Tara Mother Goddess who answers human supplication. The shining figure Sita Tara was born of a single tear of compassion shed by Avaloketishwara on seeing the suffering of humanity. Tibetan Buddhism numbers 21 Taras, often featuring seven all-seeing eyes of compassion (three in the forehead, one in each palm and foot sole). White Tara, the mild form of the goddess, promises health, long life and prosperity. Green Tara, her foot outstretched to meet supplicants, is protectress in practical matters, and engenders growth. Black and Red Taras are fiercer guises. Here the deity may use suffering to foster the devotee's healing and courage. But even in Her wrathful aspect, Tara's role is to dispel the fear of death and foster the evolution of compassion. We have many other Taras:
