TARA

 

“Whatever living beings there may be — feeble or strong, long, stout, or of medium size, short, small, large, those seen or those unseen, those dwelling far or near, those who are born as well as those yet to be born — may all beings have happy minds.”

TARA MÃE

 Exalted Goddess, Mother Tara, you dwell within the mother, the unborn sphere of phenomena. Giver of ease to all sentient beings, please protect me from every peril!

Mother Goddess, please protect sentient ones who wander in cyclic existence - my mothers whose minds have fallen under the sway of afflictions and do not recognise that they themselves are Dharmakaya.
Authentic Mother Goddess, please protect those in whose minds Dharma has not sincerely arisen - those who, following after (mere) expressions, have been deceived by base doctrines.
Mindful Mother Goddess, please protect those distracted by evil activities - those who, having seen the natural mind, so difficult to comprehend, do not habituate it.
Goddess of Nondual Mind, please protect those who, no matter what they do, are bound by the mental imprints of dualistic grasping at the mind that is self-arisen non-dual wisdom.
Omniscient Mother Goddess, please protect those ignorant of the meaning of knowable things - those who, though having dwelt in the true meaning, are not aware of the dependent relations of cause and effect.
Perfect Mother Buddha, please protect those beings - disciples who still (do not see) that all things, endowed with the attribute of unelaborate space, are inseparable therefrom.

ACHI CHOKYI DROLMA


 


ACHI CHOKYI DROLMA

Dharma Protector of the Drikung Kagyu tradition
Achi Chokyi Drolma (Tib. A-chi Chos-kyi sGrol-ma) is a female Dharma protector (Tib. Dharmapala) whose practice was introduced by Drikung ('Bri-gung) Achi, the matriarch of the Drikung hereditary lineage. She is white-coloured and is portrayed riding a blue horse, she holds a double-sided drum in the upraised right hand and a skullcup in the left held to the heart.
Achi Chokyi Drolma's aspect is peaceful, not wrathful, as with many Dharma protectors. A great Tantric practitioner and a great teacher she taught many students. She once conducted a sacramental feast (Tib. Chöd) transforming a human corpse into a sacred offering. At that time she vowed to be a protector of Buddhism, composing a liturgy for invoking herself as a protector deity. Upon completion of the verses, she flew into the air on the back of a blue horse and departed for a Buddhist heaven, or Pure Land.

Brief Windhorse Practice of Tārā

 

Brief Windhorse Practice of Tārā


by Patrul Rinpoche

Through the blessing and power of the unfailing Buddha, Dharma and Saṅgha, and of Jetsünma,
Mother of the Buddhas, Noble Tārā,
May our lifespan, merit, prosperity and renown
Increase like a waxing moon, like a rising summer lake.
Especially may our good fortune, wangtang and windhorse
Be healed when they weaken, rejoined when interrupted, raised up when sinking down;
May whatever we do turn out well,
And may long life, good health, peace and happiness be ours!

om tare tuttare ture soha ཨོཾ་ཏཱ་རེ་ཏུཏྟཱ་རེ་ཏུ་རེ་སྭཱ་ཧཱ། ཞེས་སོ། ཨོཾ་ཏཱ་རེ་ཏུཏྟཱ་རེ་ཏུ་རེ་སྭཱ་ཧཱ། ཞེས་སོ།

May all of above apply to every dear sentient being on Mother Earth.
