The goddess Tara has many different traditions – she is a Hindu symbol of eternal light and love, a Buddhist goddess of compassion teaching the wisdom of non-attachment, and a Tibetan goddess of love. Born from her mother’s single tear-drop of compassion for humanity’s suffering, Tara’s essential energy is that of answering human pleas for assistance.
HER MODERN ENERGY
The different aspects of Tara promise health and long life engendering growth and prosperity. Other fiercer guises foster healing and courage through adversity and suffering. Yet Tara’s core attribute is that of compassion – she will not turn anyone away but will reach for them, embrace them, and instil them with a sense of profound love and peace.
