Dear friends,

I had the great fortune to receive the White & Green Tara empowerments from His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche back in the 80’s. Anything from Kyabje Zong Rinpoche received was and is greatly treasured. Sometimes I think to myself how come I was so lucky to meet one of the top from Tibet all the way in Los Angeles and being so young also. It’s like a dream now. One of the best times I experienced in this life was my time with His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche. The events and memories forever fresh in my mind.

Tara is the Yidam of many great Masters, Mahasiddhas of both India, Mongolia, Nepal and Tibet. And now all over the world. Her practices are very well known for their effectiveness. She has 21 principal forms…each form is a complete refuge of the other 2o and all the Three Jewels in fact. If you take Tara as your Yidam (main meditational Buddha) it is complete practice unto itself…which form you take on depends on the individual…all 21 forms is complete.

White Tara is a complete synthesis of all the Three Jewels including the other 20 Taras. Each Tara is specific for a specific ailment we have. For example Black Tara can conquer negative spirits. Yellow Tara can overcome financial difficulties. Red Tara can control a certain problem in the environment in an area…and so on. Tara’s benefits are much more than for a specific ailment, but for now this would suffice.

When we take refuge in White Tara, she is a complete refuge. Her three eyes see into the past, present and future simultaneously. She perceives all knowables/phenomena directly. The third eye represents her complete state of omniscience, in other words, Buddhahood.  Only a Buddha can perceive all there is to know in existence. Her right hand is in the gesture of granting mundane and supermundane boons. These boons can be received based upon our practice of her.

Elegantly her left hand with the fourth finger and the thumb holds a lotus stem leading to an open bloom, a bud and one flower gone to fruit. Open bloom represents the current Buddha Shakyamuni. The bud is Maitreya. The flower gone to fruit is the past Buddha Krukkachanda prior to Shakyamuni. Tara symbolized by her lotus has all the dharmas of the Buddhas of the past, present and future.

Her legs in full lotus posture represents she is directly in full meditative concentration of emptiness…she abides in it and operates from it..another sign of her full enlightenment. It is also a reminder for us that practice of meditation is essential for enlightenment. She wears the five ornaments plus her own body represents the 6 paramitas which is totally necessary for our practice in the beginning, middle and for the end. Her body being resplendently beautiful is an ornament in itself…as she has the perfection of Buddhahood.

She has seven eyes representative that she sees into the 6 realms of rebirth and the 7th eye is that she sees the way out or direct cause of samsara. Seeing this direct cause of samsara she acts according to each sentient beings’ aptitude to liberate them of their inner/outer samsaras.

She is white in color as in this form she is most ‘potent’ to heal diseases (inner/outer) and its root causes. When we take on this form for our practice we can increase our life span effortlessly to further our practice, gain tremendous amounts of merit towards liberation, and increase our wisdom (7 types) exponentially.

She has blue black hair half tied up in three knots and half falling freely around her shoulders/back. The hair tied up shows us she has reached the highest goal-Nirvana. The hair falling down is, although liberated, she does not remain in Nirvana, but emanates constantly to benefit others. She returns to Samsara willingly to assist those karmically ready always. She abides in samsara without any samsara abiding in her. She is youthful and young like that of a sixteen year old maiden reminding us that  Enlightenment is permanent and does not fade. She has budding breasts filled with ambrosia like a mother ready to nurse her child. Her budding breasts signifies she is ever ready to bestow the profound 84,000 dharmas as taught by Shakyamuni like a mother giving life sustaining milk. The ‘milk’ is dharma and we if fortunate are her children..Her back rests on a full moon as she has accomplished complete bodhicitta. She also sits on a full moon as she operates from emptiness. The moon is representative of aspirational and completed emptiness. Under the moon is a lotus, being she has attained full bodhicitta.

Aeons ago, during the time of the previous Buddha (Kyabje Zong Rinpoche relayed)…there was a princess with a name of Moon…or Dawa…she was very virtuous and beloved by her father the King. She had open access to her father’s treasury. She was gentle, kind, compassionate and very spiritual in nature. Unlike other young girls, she was not interested in the meaningless affairs of youth such as games, garments, princes, foods, walks. She was an ardent follower of the then Buddha and attended his teachings, sponsored the talks, foods, resting villas, sangha and whatever needs arose. She was his student and benefactor. One day she happened upon an old, but very sincere monk who rejoiced in Moon Princess’ virtues and sponsorship. He addressed her with respect and said she should dedicate all her virtues to obtaining a body of a man as in a woman’s impure form, enlightenment was not possible. She gently folded her hands and replied to the senior monk with great respect and said that the Perfect Buddha said all can obtain liberation irregardless of being in male or female bodies. There and then, the noble Moon Princess took a vow and prayed to take rebirth as a female. And that she would when enlightened take on a female form always to liberate others…in her lifetime, she did intense practices…she gained the much treasured goal of liberation. The earth shook, animals came near, gentle winds blew, the gods blew conch shells, rainbows appeared, supernatural beings such as nagas, gods, demigods, yakshas all paid homage to this magnificent noble lady as TARA WAS BORN…

If we have the great merits, fortune and affinity for Tara to be our Buddha, we should devote all our energies into her practice. We should set up a  magnificent shrine to this Noble Lady Buddha, make vast offerings, and engage in our practices with full confidence. All the Mahasiddhas and Mahapanditas such as Nagarjuna, Atisha, Tsongkapa fully relied upon her..so we should have full confidence in this magnificent Lady…we should obtain as many as we can holy images of her and pass to people as gifts. Last year, one of the pujas for my long life/health was to make one Tara statue for each year of my life and gift it to other people. Even creating a statue of this Lady Buddha has such benefits. I did make the statues in fact…I was very happy to do so.

Many statues of Tara in Tibet, Nepal and India have spoken. For curious reasons, her statues are easier to manifest speech. I came across two very holy statues in temples that my teachers said they have spoken on a few occasions. They did not speak to me, but all the same, I made offerings to these holy statues with great reverance and joy. Many pilgrims visited these holy images monthly…

In Nepal, in the middle of Kathmandu, there is a very sacred image of White Tara around two feet in height that Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche always recommends for us to visit and make offerings. She is said to have manifested miracles in the past and is very blessed. I had the fortune to bring many freinds to visit this Tara. It is also said, if karmically you do not have the merits, it will be very hard to find the location of this image…

I have included some prayers we can do daily to Mother Tara. We can do all of it..or some of it..or one of it or however we like. No hard and fast rules. The prayers are very powerful and it includes her sacred mantra. We can recite her long mantra or her short mantra. It is up to us. What is important is to do it daily and from our hearts.

I was inspired to write and share all this when I came across the 52 SPECTACULAR paintings of Lady Buddha Tara.

I wish everyone well. I wish all of you happiness. I wish all are under the protection of this noble being called Tara.

Tsem Rinpoche

 

P.S. The three prayers I’ve included below can be done one after the other daily (that would be beautiful and most beneficial), or just two of them, or just pick one. See your time and commitments. They can be used to bless one’s car, new house, land, or before a journey. We can recite this to bless even our pendants, water, food, environments, gifts, thangkas, rosaries…etc. They can be recited if we feel uneasy or in an area/place with negative energy. They can be recited for healing, fulfilling of wishes or simply to supplicate Tara for someone we care about. Her prayers and mantras are excellent to be recited for the sick or our pets. Let the mantras be blown onto our pets…excellent. If someone is sick, we can recite these prayers (Being vegetarian is best for Tara practice. If not, if we are going to do the prayers and perhaps mantra 100,ooo times for example, we take a vow to Tara to refrain from meat and dedicate to the healing of a person or pet during that time) as much as possible. It is excellent to do these prayer for our parents whether they are living or passed. Excellent to do these prayers and dedicate to our teachers’ lives and work..It automaticaly increases our lifespan. Tara helps dharma projects or beneficial projects to manifest much faster. Her practice has so many incredible benefits

 


 

A GEM TO INCREASE LIFE AND WISDOM
A PRAISE OF WHITE TARA

By GYALWA GENDUN DRUB
The First Dalai Lama (1391 – 1474)

Homage to the Female Buddha beautiful with youth / Who sits on seats of white lotus and moon in nature / Spreading with stainless compassion and knowledge, / Who captures the radiance of snow mountains.

Homage to the Youthful One with budding breasts, / Who has one face and two arms, sits in the Vajra posture, / Is bold with grace and calm, has a full moon as backrest / And is filled with great bliss.

Homage to the Ultimately Generous One whose right hand, / Showing the mudra Supreme Giving / Easily releases boundless karmas of peace, increase, power and wrath / As well as the eight siddhis and even supreme Buddhahood.

Homage to the Spiritual Mother who gives birth to Buddhas / Past, present and future; whose left hand / Supporting a blue lotus, grants protection / From lions, elephants, fires and all eight terrors.

Homage to the Refuge of the World, who has eyes / In hands and feet gazing at the four doors of freedom / And who leads all living creatures / Toward the isle of blissful liberation.

Homage to she whose face unites / The beauty of a million autumn moons, / Whose wide eyes gaze with compassion / Whose Joyous mouth smiles equally on all.

Homage to she with head adorned by Amitayus, Boundless Life, / The mere thought of whom grants life and wisdom / Whose hand, in the contemplative mudra, / Hold a vase filled with ambrosia of immortality.

Homage to the All-Beautiful One whose crown / Steals the light of sun and moon, / Whose sapphire hair is half-knotted on top, / And half falling freely over her shoulder.

Homage to the Majestic One of precious ornament blazing, / Whose crown, earrings, necklaces, arm-bands, / Bracelets, anklets and belt so elegantly arranged / Surpass the ornaments of men and gods.

Homage to she of celestial raiment, / Whose shoulder-sash and skirt / Hug her body like rainbows / Hug the crystal mountains.

Homage to the goddess before whose lotus feet / Vishnu, Indra, Shiva, the anti-gods, spirits, / Men, semi-humans and all the world / Submit themselves in devotion.

Merely by reciting your mantra, / Those who make offering at your lotus feet / Gain immortality, wisdom and merit / And attain all desired siddhis; to you I bow down.

The knowledge, compassion and perfect actions of all Buddhas / Appear in the form of the beautiful goddess / I take refuge in you and offer you my prayers; / Pray eliminate all my obstacles and fulfil all my aims.

Quickly release your perfect action of peace, / Calming all interferences to my practices for enlightenment; / Interferences such as the eight terrors, / Sickness, demons and other harmful agents, inner and outer.

Quickly release your perfect action of increase which multiplies / All good qualities, such as life, merit, unapprehending compassion, / The stainless wisdom of learning, contemplation and meditation, / And the three higher trainings.

Quickly release your perfect action of power, / Which causes gods, men and spirits / To humbly bow before you / And which fulfils all wishes of the mind.

Quickly release your perfect action of wrath, / Which with punishments befitting the evils done / Destroys demons, interferences and hindrances / Hateful opposing Buddhadharma and its holders.

Pray, bestow quick and easy attainment of siddhis / Such as the magic sword, mystic eye-medicine, fast walking, / The food pill and the precious vase; / And even mahamudra, the highest siddhi.

In brief, from now until enlightenment / I respectfully make offering at your lotus feet. / I need seek no other refuge / Out of compassion gaze upon me and quickly grant protection.

By the meritorious energy of this practice / May the transcended, perfect Tara / Look upon me forever with pleasure / And never leave me, even for a moment.

May all sentient beings after death take rebirth / Before Amitayus in Sukhavati, Land of Pure Joy; / May they live in the ways of the great Bodhisattvas / And come to equal Avalokiteshvara, Lord of Compassion.

May I realize the oceans of Sutras and Tantras / To be able to pass them on to others; / And until samsara be emptied may I strive / To uphold the victory banner of practicing exactly as taught.

Colophon: this praise of exalted White Tara, supreme mother of all Buddhas, was written by the monk Gyalwa Gendun Drub while he was residing in the Hermitage of Great Awakening at the Tegchen Potreng.

Can recite this once a day for someone sick, for someone who has passed, an animal/pet or for ourselves followed by the mantra. Very excellent to recite this mantra and blow on our pets also or into a fish tank. We can even blow into bottled water and pour the water into lakes, streams, rivers to bless the environment. If we are moving into a new house, we can recite this prayer to bless it or even the land.

White Tara Long Mantra: OM TARE TUTTARE TORE MAMA AYUH PUNYE JANA PUTRIM KURU YE SOHA

 


 

PRAISES TO THE 21 TARAS

Recite them once and/or offer prostrations or folding ones’ hand and think like this: Praising and prostrating each time, like a spark of fire comes from another, a replica of the respective Tara manifests and sinks into you.

Prayer
CH’AK-YÄ CH’OK-JIN CH’AK-GYA-NYI / /
Let me and all who need protection
KYAP-JIN CH’AK-GYAR GY’UR-WÄI OK / /
Enter beneath Your right-hand mudra
DAK-D’ANG SUNG-J’A KÜN TS’Ü-NÄ / /
Of granting boons, the Refuge mudra,
JIK-PA KÜN-LÄ UK-YUNG-GY’UR / /
And be relieved from every fear!

From your sublime abode at the Potala
O Tara – born from the green letter TAM
Your crown adorned with Amitabha,
Action-mother of the Buddhas of the three times,
Come with your retinue, I beg you.

The gods and demi-gods bow
To your lotus feet, O Tara,
You who rescue all who are destitute
To you, Mother Tara, I pay homage.

It is very beneficial to recite this as much as possible if we wish to fulfill a long heartfelt wish. Those wishing a child will get one, those wishing a son will get one, those wishing a daughter will receive one…those wishing sustenance will receive or before a long journey to be safe, this 21 praises is very potent. All of our wishes can be fulfilled when we recite this with faith and diligently. When one takes refuge in Tara, all does go right.

 


 

A SONG OF LONGING FOR TARA, THE INFALLIBLE

By Lozang Tanpa Gyalts’an

Homage to Guru Arya-Tara!

1. Three Infallible Jewels of Refuge combined
In one, Divine Mother Whose nature is Compassion,
I bow to You from my heart! Till I’m enlightened,
Support me, I pray, with the hook of Your Compassion!

2. I call the Jewels as witness – from not just my mouth,
But the depth of my inmost heart and bones, I pray –
Think of me somewhat! Show me Your smiling face!
Loving One, grant me the nectar of Your Speech!

3. Others cheat us with their made-up teachings,
Selling Dharma for money that’s marked by impermanence,
Proclaiming ignorance knowledge, puffed up with pride
Through the eight worldly Dharmas, gurus great and small.

4. Since I cannot trust such Friends of degenerate times,
The principal Guru of mine is You Yourself.
Inspire me, Mother of the nature of love!
Arouse Your great power of Compassion! Think of me!

5. Relied on as Refuge, none of them will deceive us;
But, seeing the ways of this degenerate age,
Most Buddhas sink down into the bliss of Nirvana;
Some, though compassionate, have weak karmic connection.

6. Since I have no other Yidam deity,
My principal Deity is You Yourself.
Grant me siddhis, Mother of loving nature!
Arouse Your great power of compassion! Think of me!

7. Most protectors don’t show their powers and skills –
Disgusted with their practitioners, they do not act.
Others, proud of worldly fame, may be
Good for a while, but cheat us in the end.

8. Since I cannot trust protectors such as these,
My principal Protector is You Yourself.
Fulfil the Activities, Mother of loving nature!
Arouse Your great power of Compassion! Think of me!

9. Common worldly riches, the meaning like the name,
Arouse defilements and bind one in Samsara.
What jewels, except the Aryas, though they grant wishes,
Can let me take even a sesame seed when I die?

10. Since I cannot trust illusory riches,
The principal wealth I have is You Yourself.
Grant my desires, O Mother of loving nature!
Arouse Your great power of compassion! Think of me!

11. Not fit to be trusted even for one day,
Their thoughts determinedly set on misbehaviour,
Just acting friendly, these friends of no virtue
Play the friend when they wish, the enemy when they don’t.

12. Since I cannot trust these friends of degenerate times,
The principal friend of mine is You Yourself.
Be close to me, O Mother of loving nature!
Arouse Your great power of compassion! Think of me!

13. In short, my Guru, my Deity and Protector,
My Refuge, dwelling, food, wealth, friends and all-
Everything whatsoever I wish, You are;
So make me accomplish everything easily!

14. Let me stop also my present stubborn mind,
And rouse the Compassion that even on coming to give
A billion times for every being’s sake
My body and life tires not – inspire me thus!

15. The uprooter of Samsara’s maker, self-grasping,
The deep Middle Way, so hard to understand,
Avoiding all errors of the two extremes,
Pure Right View – Please inspire me to realise it!

16. Wishing, for sentient beings’ sake, to win Buddhahood,
Let me not think for a moment of my own pleasure,
But dedicating all virtues to beings and Doctrine,
Perfect my renounced Bodhi-mind – inspire me thus!

17. Rich in the Aryas’ Treasures, faith and the rest,
Let me become the best of Buddha-sons, able
To keep the smallest precept taught by the Conquerors,
Never contemptuous of it – inspire me thus!

18. In outward behaviour keeping the Hearer’s conduct,
Let me, in inward belief, revere the Profound
Vajrayana, and practice the Two-Stage Path,
So winning Enlightenment swiftly – inspire me thus!

19. Whether I’m happy or troubled, whether things
Go well or badly for me, whatever I do
You know about it, Venerable Tara, so
Think of me lovingly, my only Mother!

20. Myself and all the beings with hopes of me
I offer to You, Venerable Tara!
Make us Your own, and to the highest Pure Land
Make us go quickly, with no births intervening!

21. My mothers, who do not follow the Conquerors’ teachings,
All mother sentient beings, whoever they are –
With Your hook of compassionate skilful Means
Please transform their minds into Dharma!

22. Reciting this at morning, noon and night,
And bearing in mind Venerable Tara,
Let all sentient beings with hopes of me
Be born in whatever Pure Land they desire!

23. May every member of the Three precious Jewels,
Especially the Venerable Mother, compassionate-natured,
Look after me till I reach the point of Enlightenment
Letting me conquer quickly the four Maras’ hosts!

If we can, we can recite this prayer of the Infallible to Tara immediately upon waking, at noon and at night before sleeping. If we recite this from our hearts and the very core of our beings, it is said we will see Mother Tara’s face directly. But if anything we should recite when we can…it is beneficial.

Please support us so that we can continue to bring you more Dharma:

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this article. What I had learnt from the story of Mother Tara reaching enlightenment is everyone is equal and everyone can reach enlightenment if we tap into our buddha nature. It was believed that the body of a women is impure in olden times and when a senior monk told Princess Dawa to make aspirations to be reborn as male to become enlightened, she kindly refuted and instead made vow to be reborn as female until enlightened. Anyone with any gender, social status, social background, and race can become enlightened if they tap into their buddha nature. This is because the body is just a vessel while the mind is the one that matters.

    Humbly,
    Chris

    It is very hard to pick a favorite. If I can only pick one, for the moment I would pick White Tara in a Garden. They are all worth studying and enjoying and worth a place of honor in someone’s home pr temple. Thank you for making them available for us to see.

    I always read this blog post after sometime to refresh my memory , and to receive the blessing from White Tara and Rinpoche continuously.

  10. tenzin llhamo on Dec 10, 2012 at 1:17 pm

    There are so many I don’t know which to choose. I would say my favorites would be White Tara by the Water and White Tara with Eight Auspicious Symbols. I have made one of them as my wallpaper. Hehe..
    Wouldn’t it be great if we have the permission to have these printed on T shirts for our Souvenir Shop in KFR…

  11. Sharon Saw on Feb 8, 2011 at 5:08 pm

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful paintings! I love them all… it’s so incredibly difficult to choose a favourite. At a push, I like the White Tara with Waves and the White Tara with the rainbow.

    Thank you most of all for the spectacular teaching on Tara, her history, symbolism and prayers.

    with folded hands and gratitude,

    white tara in the garden

  13. Jace Chong on Jan 20, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    I like “White Tara with birds”.
    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing the story about Tara. I always love Tara and she is very attractive to me. I used to keep a Tara picture in my wallet many years ago before I met Kechara.
    I will try to do the prayers as much as I can, as I really wish our KIM works will manifest swiftly!

    Dear Rinpoche
    Is a very nice pictures I like the Tara in garden
    I think the color combination is neat.

  15. firefly on Jan 16, 2011 at 12:18 am

    Wonderful Tara, she clears all obstacles for any practitioner. I can share from my own experience that if anyone is experiencing any difficulty in any form, just pray to her with sincerity and recite her mantra. She will definitely help. And the situation will change somehow. Even if the result is not what you expected but Tara will help according to one’s karma.

    So so many inspirations received from her and my friends too.She is truly incredible and the activity of all the Buddhas! Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha

  16. henryooi on Jan 14, 2011 at 4:18 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    My favorite is White Tara in the mountains.

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for posting these beautiful pictures of Mother Tara for everyone to share.

  17. Helen Oana Lascar on Jan 11, 2011 at 6:37 pm

    I like White Tara with Purple Flowers and Mountains, White Tara with stars and White Tara in the Garden. All the images are delicate and beautiful.

  18. Lasha Mutual on Jan 8, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I want to express my sincere gratitude to you for posting my paintings on your blog, and for the kind comments about my work.

    I have felt very enriched by working with White Tara both in meditation and within my paintings. My devotion deepens with each painting and my motivation for the series continues to grow!

    Reading your teaching on Tara and the prayers included is very inspirational – thank you! I will enjoy reading your blog in the future.

    With many kind wishes,

    Lasha

    Eminence, Dharma Prince,

    Many years ago, when I was a market vendor, I had a “cardiac episode” while packing up for the night. I asked my Girlfriend and companion to drive home, which was a long drive, more than 100 miles.

    It became clear to me that I was going to die very shortly.

    I was not as well-educated in Dharma matters back then.

    I began to recite Tara Mantras as fast as I could, thinking all the while that, while I, myself was more than ready for the end of my life, my Mother, whom I cared for, and my Daughter, who is Autistic, and suffers from other psychological problems, both still needed me very badly.

    Thousands and thousands of Mantras I recited, keeping these thoughts in mind.

    Suddenly, I felt very calm, and I thought I was starting to actually die, but instead, I felt as if I were floating near the bottom of a cold lake… but the cold was not unpleasant… I saw little white “tiles” floating down at me from above, where there was a beautiful white light. These little tiles, in order, spelled the words “16 Ba’al”…

    Soon, I felt much better, and by the time we arrived home, I was fine.

    I did not die. White Tara in her infinite mercy examined my situation, and has extended my life for a number of years. My mother is now passed, and my daughter is growing up, and soon, she will not need me either. I think, then, I will probably die, but I am so pleased to have lived to be of help to my Mother, and was able to see my daughter through her childhood.

    What the “16 Ba’al” ever meant, I do not know… some wise people have told me that it represented the “16 strengths that counteract the 16 weaknesses of men.” In any event, I am certain to find it out one day, I think.

    This has been a good life. It is the first life in which I have encountered the Dharma, as far as I can tell. That makes it very special and precious indeed. It will not be my last human life, although I am personally hoping for rebirth in the Lapis Lazuli Pure Land, with the Medicine Buddha, so that I can practice without so much difficulty, and distraction from a defective body.

    Many thanks to Tara, and many thanks to you, Dharma Prince.

    Love,

    –Tom

  20. Paris on Jan 7, 2011 at 3:35 am

    Rinpoche, thank you for these beautiful photos. I want all of them! Am downloading some now to be put on my phone wallpaper.

    The explanations and teachings about Tara never ever boring; it’s like I’m hearing or reading them for the first time every time Rinpoche gives teachings about her. Thank you also for the prayers, so that all of us have the chance to connect to her blessings. She certainly is very special and all the luckier for us that there’s 21 of her!

  21. joey wong on Jan 7, 2011 at 12:17 am

    I love the expression and the art of White Tara with stars! She looks so compassionate and nurturing! That piece really captured Tara’s expressions!

    And thank you Rinpoche…the explanation of Tara is really beautiful! I never get bored of it….i first read her prayers in Martin Wilson’s In Praise Of Tara and it blew me away! Re-reading it here brings back so much memories of the time i first read that book and encountered Mother Tara…

  22. Raluca on Jan 6, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Very beatiful! ART IS HOLY, when done from the heart, it brings joy and uplift our state of mind.

    My favourites are: White Tara with birds, for the etheral effect, and White Tara with blossom and cave for its touchinglike very pictural quality.
    thank youuuu!

  23. Uncle Eddie on Jan 6, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    All images are equally stunning, beautiful and very original, but the one which appears most appealing to me is ” White Tara with two islands “. Thank you so much Rinpoche for these inspiring images and the teachings.

  24. Roland Yap on Jan 6, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I like the drawing of White Tara with Offerings.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful teaching.

    Roland Yap

  25. Nicole on Jan 6, 2011 at 1:50 pm

    Dearest Rinpoche,

    Thank you so much for your valuable time for explaining in details regarding the Lady Buddha. The images of White Tara are stunning. I had a hard time deciding which I like. In the end, I have decided White Tara with snow falling, White Tara with Owl, White Tara in the garden and lastly White Tara with offerings and White Tara with stars. But I think I like White tara in the garden best..

    I do truly appreciate you explaining to us in details regarding Tara. It means a lot to me because that helps me a lot when I do my prayers.

    With folded hands, wishing you good health and happiness always,

    Nicole Mah

  26. Adeline Woon on Jan 6, 2011 at 1:48 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Lo-gsar-bde-legs!

    I like the White Tara With Waves. If you would, please let me know why does age 16 representing youthful and young like? Why not 15 or 17? Has it anything to do with puberty?

    May you live a long life to turn the wheel of dharma.

    With palms together,
    Adeline Woon

  28. Andrew Chiam on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:54 am

    Hi Rinpoche,

    Thanks for the great sharing. I always have affinity with Tara.
    And I enjoyed and benefit alot from the post.
    My fav will be “White Tara with Eight Auspicious Symbols”

  29. Sock on Jan 6, 2011 at 11:48 am

    Dear Rinpoche,
    These images are very nice, I like the “Tara in the mountains”. I hope to visit Tibet and Nepal one day.

    I wish you good health and long life so that more people can benefit from your Dharma teachings.

  30. Mimi on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:52 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I noticed there is slight variation in text “Praises to the 21 Taras” from what posted in your website.
    http://tsemtulku.com/resources/prayers/prayers-deity-prayer/praises-to-the-21-taras/
    Is it OK to follow the one from your website or add in the missing text.

    • tsemtulku on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:54 am

      Yes, there are various translations. Please add in what you feel is missing. Thanks

  31. Lars on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:49 am

    Thank you for this post Rinpoche. Because I haven’t expressed my gratitude for all your effort in this blog earlier, I would like to thank you again. As for the picture, “White Tara with Birds” is the one I’m choosing. It’s simply beautiful.

  32. MD on Jan 6, 2011 at 7:56 am

    Dear Most Venerable Tsem Rinpoche,
    how wonderful you have composed this text about the Lady Buddha White Tara for this blog!!! All paintings are beautiful. My favourite is “White Tara by the Water”.

  33. dasa on Jan 6, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Dear Rinpoche. Thank You so much for putting this beautiful pictures of White Tara. I put some as my desk background on computer. Very inspiring for me. As well thank You for practices. Very precious.
    I can still remember when I just started with Dharma practices, seeing Tara image was first to really inspire me and still does every single day. I bow down to Her.

  34. Christoph on Jan 6, 2011 at 7:04 am

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche !!!

    Thank you for these inspiring images and words.

    I like White Tara in the Garden :-).

    Good Tara inspirations to you !!!

    Christoph

  35. Sandy on Jan 6, 2011 at 6:42 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    The images of Tara are stunning – a very talented artist indeed! The image I was most drawn to was White Tara with Chrysanthemums. It seems so full and free and vibrant and – I’m not exactly sure why – it reminds me of some works by Vincent van Gogh.

    Kind regards,
    Sandy

  36. John C on Jan 6, 2011 at 6:36 am

    Rinpoche, I like them all, particularly the ones with the snow flakes.

    Jon 🙂

  37. Ani Tsering Dolma on Jan 6, 2011 at 5:22 am

    Dear Tsem Tulku Rinpoche-La,

    my favourite pictures are White Tara with Three Trees, In the Garden and By The Water. But all of them are beautiful. Thanks for posting the blog

  38. kaner on Jan 6, 2011 at 4:44 am

    Wow, nice pics. Refreshingly untypical.

  39. tsemtulku on Jan 6, 2011 at 4:06 am

    Please let me know WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE Tara painting. I am interested to see everyone’s choice. Tsem Rinpoche

    • kaner on Jan 6, 2011 at 4:47 am

      “White Tara with Birds”

    • Mimi on Jan 6, 2011 at 9:08 am

      “White Tara with Good Wishes”

    • Zla'od on Jan 6, 2011 at 10:32 am

      It’s so hard to decide! I’m torn between “Birds and Islands” (no. 4), “Snow Falling” (no. 8), and “Mountains” (no. 47), but if forced to choose just one, would pick “Birds and Islands.”

      Several of these seem to have been inspired by Shaivite iconography.

      In “Praise to the 21 Taras,” interestingly, nowhere does the text actually say that it is addressed to 21 Taras. For example, there is no description of color, etc. All of the verses could be read as if they were describing the same deity.

    • Sonia on Jan 7, 2011 at 3:45 am

      They are all beautiful. The artist is truely talented.
      I have 2 that appeals to me – Tara with offerings and Tara with Owl.

    • Andrew James Boon on Jan 7, 2011 at 3:43 pm

      Dearest Rinpoche,

      I am torn between two: One is the White Tara with Pomegranates… reason being these fruits are my mother’s favourite and it is not very common to find and having the connection of mother tara with my own mother was very apt. The other is the White Tara with Rain as I find it so serene and beautiful. I always loved the rain and I find this very moving for me.

      Much love… Andrew

    • patsy on Jan 7, 2011 at 10:37 pm

      It’s so difficult to choose cos everyone is spectacular and beautiful. My final decision is “White Tara by the Water” and “White Tara in the Garden” because it depicts Tara in very feminine form and I like the poise which is very graceful and the elegance of the face features.

    • ACL on Jan 8, 2011 at 3:08 pm

      they are all the same. multi-ifforusly beautiful! who did this? i would enjoy seeing them all on a wall all at once together.

    • Josh Akers on Jan 9, 2011 at 12:23 pm

      I like White Tara in the Rain.

      It looks like the rain could be the downpour of Samsara and Tara is not affected by it. Also I must like it simply because I live in Oregon where it rains a lot.

    • Sharon Ong on Feb 4, 2014 at 12:16 pm

      I like the White Tara with Whale. Very unique and she has such a gentle, beautiful face.

    • Jacinta Goh on Mar 7, 2015 at 2:00 am

      Dear Rinpoche,

      I prefer “White Tara in the mountain”. I prefer the painting in the “traditional” way…

    • Phng Keng Hwa on May 18, 2015 at 1:02 am

      “White Tara with Offerings”

    After been rejected for so many years, many scientists like Seoul National University finally confirmed the existence of meridians. It’s a piece of glad news which may help the people especially the treatments like acupuncture is based on meridians and energy channels.

    Life is full of challenges and commitments. This is not easy for everyone has immediate lifestyle changes to maintain a healthy balance for eating and living. Therefore, this wonderful news is really bring benefits to others especially those are really need for acupuncture or similar treatments which are caused by nadis blockages and etc.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this nice sharing.

    Beautiful image of Vajrayogini indeed with shimmering jewels offered to her. Its so nice of this lady Ms Wahyu of her painting of Vajrayogini to our previous Rinpoche whom she have not met before.Vajrayogini’s practice is very powerful to start now making offerings and to be connected .we will then gain a great amount of merits.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beautiful painting of Vajrayogini.

    Mwalua is truly a very compassionate person. Not many would want to trouble themselves or even risk their live to bring water to these animals. He has such a big heart towards living beings and the importance of life.

    Angie Brown, Cher Callaway and Tami Calliope are also very generous and kind person. They help him to raise fund so he can continue with his action to save the animals.

    I hope Mwalua will receive continuous help from all kind donors so animals don’t have to suffer.

    Heartwarming message from Mwalua, who is so compassionate and empathetic:
    “There is completely no water, so the animals are depending on humans,” Mwalua tells The Dodo. “If we don’t help them, they will die.”

    Mwalua fully aware that the wildlife will definitely die without the water. Furthermore, only humans can help the animals. He is able to let go of his stress and laziness just to deliver the water patiently and passionately. Many wildlife have been saved due to his kind actions. Furthermore, he visited local schools and hope to bring awareness to the children so that when they grow up they can protect the wildlife as one of their legacies.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing. This is a good example of loving kindness and compassion to inspire us to greater loving kindness and compassion.

    By being a good example ourselves, we can be a more effective campaigner for the helpless animals. I believe that when we want to stand for something, the most powerful words that speak for us is our action. It is inconsistent when one campaigns for the rescued or stray dogs and ask for donations to feed them but consume chicken and seafood and pork and beef. There is no difference between these animals, they all have feelings and fear for pain. So, here’s a picture of the dogs all trapped in a cramped cage where chicken, sea animals, pigs, and cows are in same or worse conditions waiting to be slaughtered. If you feel for these poor dogs, please spare a thought for the other meat on your plate too. Thank you, Rinpoche for this sharing.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for the teaching on What is a Blessing. Many of us got all excited when we get a “blessing” from a high lama, but often time neglected the true meaning of the blessing. What Rinpoche taught us is important because we need to stop putting our fate, destiny, life in the hands of others. The mindset of thinking that once we have gotten the blessings from a holy being and then we will have good fortune and will be set for life, s not the correct mindset. The holy lama has the power by his touch to bless us, to protect us and to open up our previous imprint. The blessing is meant to trigger us to become better and change the course of our life for the better. A blessing brings positive energy into our life, and it is really up to us to persistently pursue that good cause and change our life for the better.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden***

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective…>>> http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-advantages-of-propitiating-dorje-shugden-part-1

    FEAR NO MORE… here is a method which not only dispels the negative things sent to you and not only does it protects you but it also helps the spirit stop collecting negative karma and binds/subdues it with compassion…

    感恩仁波切和邝仁爱讲法师的分享 !

    看完这篇文章后, 我的心情很沉重和心痛, 多杰雄登修持者在这20年以来开始就被歧视, 不友善对待, 伤害,破坏家园。在文章里, 讲法师被朋友在网上绝交(只因为讲法师是雄登修持者),被丑化, 被脏言怒骂等等, 只因是” 多杰雄登修持者 ” 。那是多么的无辜和无奈和心痛 !

    在邝仁爱讲法师提到的, 赞助大德一直以来供养了庞大的资源如金钱, 修理佛堂, 建医疗中心,供养佛像等等, 让寺院里的僧人拥有舒适的地方和足够的资源修行, 但是为何只有了多杰雄登的争论课题, 西藏中央政府要严厉的把 “修持雄登者” 和” 无修持雄登者”严重的隔离呢?

    一直以来, 所有修持多杰雄登法门的高僧大德如帕绷卡仁波切, 赤江仁波切, 宋仁波切, 刚坚仁波切, 詹杜固仁波切等等都是无私的不断弘扬佛法, 把宗喀巴大师的传承与佛法传播到世界每一个角落, 利益众生 !而且, 很多修持雄登的高僧还一直转世回来继续祂们的宏愿呢 !

    修持多杰雄登法门保护我们和帮助减轻或去除我们的障碍,让我们在灵修的路上更加快速的达到成就 !

    希望尊贵的达赖尊者,西藏中央政府和有关当局可以尽早把”多杰雄登争论课题”解决, 因为还没出现这课题之前, 大家都是一样的和谐共处,一起辩论佛法,一起参加法会, 一起开心的生活。

    愿尊贵的达赖尊者与尊贵的上师詹仁波切健康长寿,吉祥如意, 愿雄登课题可以尽早解决, 世界和平 !

    OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA

    Each time when I read of the miracle helps from Rinpoche and Dorje Shugden on people who are in dire straits, the faith for the Guru and Dorje Shugden grow stronger. There are many problems in life where we, human, cannot tackle on our own; especially health problems, emergencies, and disturbance from black magic or spirit. The methods and practice shared by Rinpoche, for example, the Dorje Shugden practice, are proven methods passed from hundreds of years ago and most importantly, it works! Would we rather take a 50-50 chance or seek help from an efficient and proven method? Thank you, Pastor Seng Piow for this sharing.

    This is such great news! Congratulation to Ram on the safe arrival of his newborn baby as well as his wife being saved and survived. It’s great to see them live happily now.
    This proved to us that no matter our race, gender, age and etc, Dorje Shugden will help us if we are sincere and have faith with guru and Dorje Shugden. The instructions from guru included do the pujas, candles light offering and recite Dorje Shugden mantra were important to follow in order to help his wife and baby to collect merits and clear obstacles.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this wonderful sharing. May Ram and his family continue to be blessed by Dorje Shugden and have the opportunity to learn and practice dharma.

    Cannot imagine that the Tibetan leadership does not appreciate and show gratitude to those sponsor (jindak).Feeling sad disappointed as its Kecharas that have sponsored them 3000 sets of robes and statues to all of the monks of Gaden Monastery to name a few.Yet the jindaks were treated so badly denied services to hotel and are not allowed to revisit the monasteries that the jindaks sponsored.The Jindaks were also verbally abused in social media.All these happened just because of the practicing of Dorje Shugden as their choice.
    Thank you Rinpoche,Pastor Elena Khong Jean Ai for sharing.
    Hope more people will be aware of this discrimination against Dorje Shugden practitioners world wide.http://www.tsemrinpoche.com/tsem-tulku-rinpoche/dorje-shugden/how-tibetan-leadership-treats-a-sponsor-jindak.html

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

                        Pick the practice, devotion and precepts of Vajra Yogini\'s path over everything and anything in samsara. Samsara has nothing of value and nothing lasting to offer. You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
