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.
If you become attached to your kingdom you will be like an elephant when he sinks into mud and cannot lift himself out again because he is so huge and heavy. Do not become attached to this life. Study and practise Dharma. You have been a Spiritual Guide in many of your previous lives and in this life also you will become a Spiritual Guide.
