Paying Homage to White Tara

Published Setyembre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

Like most Buddhas or Bodhisattvas, paying homage to White Tara is quite easy but you have to have faith and belief with White Tara.

Some of the simplest way to pay homage to White Tara is having her image in your house. A figurine might be difficult to get so a thangka will also be very good. Try to offer white flowers to White Tara every week.

Wearing an image of the White Tara, specially if its made of meteorite, if you can get one, is also a great way to pay homage of White Tara.

Most important of all saying her mantra 108 times a day is a great way of paying homage to White Tara. There are 2 versions of the White Tara mantra, differing only slightly. I’ll share them both here.

1st Version: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE AYUR JNANA HRIH DRUM SOHA (also spelled as SVAHA)

2nd Version: OM TARE TUTTARE TURE MAMA AYUR PUNYE JNANA PUSHTIM KURU SOHA

Since a lot of you ask me about the correct pronunciations I’ve taken the liberty to embed a youtube video of the mantra.

White Tara: An Emanation of Goddess Tara that Grants Fertility, Longevity, and Helps Overcome Life’s Hardships

Published Setyembre 2, 2013 by jptan2012

More than a year ago, I wrote about Goddess Tara who is one of the most revered Goddess in Tibetan Buddhism. Regular readers of this blog would know that she is considered as a The Mother of Swift Liberation because of how fast she acts on our request.

For those who are not familiar with Goddess Tara, I suggest that before continuing to read this post that you check out my earlier post about Goddess Tara. Please just click on the link:

Today, I would like to introduce to you to one of the most powerful emanation of Goddess Tara, which is the White Tara.White Tara2

White Tara is a very powerful emanation of Goddess Tara that grants fertility. One of my cousins had a hard time conceiving and when I suggested that she pray to the White Tara she conceived just after 2 months of chanting White Tara’s mantra.

More than being a Goddess of Fertility, White Tara is also a Goddess of Longevity. People who are sick or people who are in physical danger can simply call on White Tara, recite her mantra and they can be assured that help will come.

Lastly, White Tara is a goddess who helps overcome life’s hardships or obstacles. An elderly woman whom I met in Singapore attested this to me; I was looking for some pendants when we got to talk to each other. On my hand at that time was an image of Goddess Tara in jade pendant. She started talking to me asking me whether I’m a devotee of Goddess Tara, I said yes, and she also shared that she is a devotee of Goddess Tara, especially White Tara.

According to BL, she got widowed an early age of 25, and she already had three children then. She used to live in China, when her husband brought her to Singapore, her in-laws didn’t like her so she they ‘abandoned’ her when her husband died. According to her she was so poor that she had to beg for food. Going back to China was not an option because of the Chinese tradition that you don’t really go back to your family once a woman got married, on top of that, like most Chinese woman her age, she was illiterate and won’t be able to write a letter even if she knows where to send the letter. BL at that time we met was approximately 73 years old.

Not having of friends of her own and being abandoned by her husband’s family, she had to work for herself and for her to survive, she begged for food, and according to her the lowest moment of her life was when she had to give up her youngest child. A childless couple adopted her baby.

BL said to make things worst she was unable to get a decent good paying job because she was illiterate. However, an elderly woman took pity of her and got her as a maid. It was this elderly woman who introduced BL to White Tara. According to BL, as soon as she started praying to White Tara, and saying White Tara’s mantra everything just got better.

BL now spends her time busying herself helping single moms through her foundation is funded by her 3 children. She named the foundation after the elderly woman who took her in.

Her children all grew up to have their own business. And while she never officially got her youngest child back, she said it doesn’t matter, because the one who adopted her youngest child became family as well, and in fact they live in the same building, with units right beside each other.

All these blessings according to BL are because of White Tara.

One curious thing though that BL shared with me is that she notice that for her White Tara works best if its carved out of a meteorite. She doesn’t have an explanation as to why because she doesn’t even understand it.

A White Tara pendant from my personal collection. I still don't know why but I agree with BL that a White Tara pendant carved out of a meteorite is more effective or powerful.

Because of her statement, I started my quest for a White Tara image and pendant carved out of a meteor. I now have in my possession 3 White Tara pendant carved out of a meteorite but to this day, I’m still looking for an image of White Tara carved out of a meteorite that I can put on my altar.

 

Paying Homage to Goddess Tara

In my previous post I talked about Goddess Tara, who is also popularly known as the Green Tara. I shared her story and I also shared the story on how Goddess Tara helped ‘liberate’ me from my previous employer.

Now, allow me to share with you ways on paying homage to Goddess Tara.

Like any other Buddha, Bodhisattva, Deity or Immortal, one of the best ways to pay homage to Goddess Tara or Green Tara is to invite her image into your home.

Having her image in your home will not only earn merits for you because you are paying homage to her, but it will also grant you blessings from Goddess Tara. Goddess Tara will provide you with countless opportunities and it is up to you to just grab these opportunities.

Again, wearing her image as a pendant will surely bring countless blessings from Goddess Tara.

From my private collection. Goddess Tara or Green Tara's image made of jadeite jade.

In times of troubles, or if you need to decide on something, or in times of change, or if you need change, call on Goddess Tara by reciting her mantra and she’ll guide you to the right path! But more than that she’ll provide you the right path!

The mantra of Goddess Tara is – OM TARE TUTTARE TURE SOHA.

There are different manifestations of Goddess Tara, this one is a White Tara pendant made out of a meteorite. This is from my private collection and got this pendant in Singapore.

Wearing a symbolic script of her mantra or her seed syllable TAM, which is included in WISH FULFILLING AND BUDDHA’S BLESSING MANTRA PENDANT, will provide you with a blessing as if you’re constantly reciting her mantra.

The pronunciation of the mantra is OM, TARE is pronounced with a short A, and RE is pronounced as RAY. TUT is pronounced as TWO, TARE same as the first TARE. TURE is pronounced TWO and RAY.
