Tara is the female manifestation of the Buddha’s omniscient mind.
“Reciting the 21 Taras’ prayer with devotion – remembering Tara singing praises and reciting mantras at any time of the day or night – protects you from fear and dangers, and fulfils all your wishes.”
Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
The colour green is associated with the air element. Hence, Green Tara is especially swift in granting the wishes of sentient beings. Tara is also known as the “Mother of all Buddhas” because she embodies wisdom – all buddhas are born from this wisdom.
