About the Practice
The Liberation from Sorrow prayers include praises to the twenty-one manifestations of Tara. Because these are Sutra, the actual words of Buddha, they are particularly powerful and blessed.
Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas.
Her name means 'Rescuer' because she rescues us from all outer and inner fears. Ultimately she rescues us from all suffering and guides us to full enlightenment.
Like a mother she protects us from all internal and external dangers; she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path.
