Suryagupta’s 21 Taras

(By Tsem Rinpoche)

Dear friends around the world,

Due to her enlightened compassion Tara manifests in innumerable forms to benefit sentient beings. These manifestations reflect the many needs of sentient beings, including protection, long life, peace, the overcoming of obstacles and saving beings from danger.

Tara is one of the most beloved deities in Vajrayana Buddhism, particularly by Tibetans. Legend has it that many eons ago, during the time of Buddha Dundubhisvara, there lived a princess named ‘Moon of Wisdom-knowledge’. She was a very devoted disciple of this Buddha, and would set out many offerings to the Buddha and sangha every day. Eventually she generated bodhicitta, the compassionate aspiration to attain enlightenment and become a Buddha herself, in order to help all living beings. Some monks came to know of this, and urged her to dedicate the merits she had created to be reborn as a male. However, the princess rejected this advice, saying:

“Here there is no man, there is no woman, no self, no person, and no consciousness. Labelling ‘male’ or ‘female’ has no essence but deceives the evil-minded world.”

She went on to make the following vow:

“There are many who desire enlightenment in a man’s body, but none who work for the benefit of sentient beings in the body of a woman. Therefore, until samsara is empty, I shall work for the benefit of sentient beings in a woman’s body.”

From that time onwards the princess dedicated herself to winning full and complete enlightenment. Once she accomplished that goal, she came to be known as Tara, the Liberator.

I wanted to share with all of you some information about Tara and some of her manifestations. The Praise to the 21 Taras is an excellent example of Tara’s various manifestations that compassionately aid sentient beings to overcome their suffering and progress on their spiritual path towards enlightenment. I hope you enjoy reading more about her various manifestations.

You can print out these pictures, and recite the prayers and mantras below to create a strong connection with her and have your life transformed by her immense energies. You do not need tantric initiation to engage in these practices. I would like to thank the very talented Mr V.V. Sapar for painting such wonderful and realistic images of the manifestations of Tara. These paintings really capture the energies of Tara and it will be beneficial to pray to the Tara in these forms. You can print out either one or more of the 21 forms and pray to that form specifically or even recite the Praise to the 21 Taras, which encompassed them all and recite the Green Tara mantra instead.

May you always be cared for by the great mother Buddha Tara in her many glorious manifestations.

The Twenty-One Taras

Tara has 21 primary emanations, each of which performs different activities such as pacification, increase, control and wrath. The different colours of these 21 Taras correspond to the four different types of enlightened activity, as explained by Venerable Kirti Tsenshab Rinpoche:

Tara is the female Buddha of enlightened activity, of which there are 4 types: pacifying, increasing, overpowering and wrathful. Each of these is represented by a different colour:

  • White represents the enlightened activity of pacifying, for example overcoming sickness, causes of untimely death and obstacles to success in one’s life or one’s practice.
  • Yellow represents the enlightened activity of increasing the positive qualities conducive to a long life, peace, happiness and success in one’s Dharma practice.
  • Red represents the enlightened activity of power, or overpowering external forces that cannot be tamed through the first two activities, for example, removing obstacles to sickness, untimely death, etc., and forcefully accumulating conducive conditions for one’s Dharma practice.
  • Black represents the enlightened activity of wrath, which involves using forceful methods for accomplishing activities for enlightened purposes that cannot be accomplished through other means.

The most common form of Tara is Green Tara. It was in this dynamic manifestation that she made the vow to return as a female Bodhisattva again and again to aid sentient beings. She is resplendent in an aura of green light, radiant with the attainment of the six perfections of giving, ethics, patience, effort, meditative stabilisation and wisdom. She glows bright with her ever-compassionate care for all sentient beings.

Tara is immensely beautiful, youthful like a 16-year-old maiden. She is naked from the waist up, though not in a lustful way. She is bare in that way because she remains unshackled by samsara and is free from all suffering.

At the same time, she wears slender and bright pants. These were traditionally worn by ancient Indian ladies, and represents that although she is enlightened, she works through worldly conventions to help us overcome our suffering.

Due to her strong karmic connection to all sentient beings in samsara, Tara tilts towards us out of her great compassion to listen to our prayers, grant us our virtuous wishes and protect us as a mother would for her child.

She is emerald green, splendid in the swiftness that the colour represents. Her ability to come to our assistance as we invoke her presence is instant – we need only think of her to have her compassionate heart with us.

Unusually, Green Tara does not sit in meditative pose; instead her right leg extends outwards, to show us that she is ready to step forward to help us in our time of need, and does so when we invoke her.

There are many lineages of the 21 Taras including the traditions coming from Suryagupta, Dipamkara Atisha, Longchen Rabjampa and Terchen Chokgyur Lingpa. Each of these lineages portray the manifestations of Tara in different ways, with different mantras, and methods of practice. An example of these differences includes the manner in which the practice is bestowed to practitioners. In the Dipamkara Atisha tradition, tantric initiation for all 21 Taras are bestowed during one ceremony, compared to the Suryagupta tradition, where initiations are given for each individual manifestation. The 21 Taras depicted here follow the Suryagupta tradition.

 

The Indian Adept and Mahasiddha Suryagupta

Suryagupta

Suryagupta or Ravigupta (Tibetan: nyi ma be pa) is one of the 84 Mahasiddhas according to a list composed by the Indian scholar Vajrasana of Bodhgaya in the 11th century. Suryagupta was a layperson from Kashmir who was miraculously cured of leprosy by a statue of the goddess Tara. He was a learned man, who was well versed in tantric practice.

When he was afflicted by leprosy, he built himself a hut and prayed for three months to the west of the temple that housed the miraculous Tara statue. After three months, the gate of the temple moved by itself to face his hut. Tara spoke through the statue and asked him “what is your wish?” to which he replied “I wish to be cured of leprosy.” At that very moment, his entire body, apart from a very small sore on his forehead, was healed of leprosy. Puzzled why the sore on his forehead was not healed, he asked “what was the reason for not curing the sore on my forehead?” Tara then replied “In a previous life, you were a hunter, you killed animals and in the end set fire to an entire forest. As a consequence, you were reborn in hell. Your current life is the last rebirth after 500 rebirths in hell.” After saying this, she bestowed him with her sadhana and praise. She told him that when anyone prays to her and invokes her, she will help them to achieve their aims, grant their wishes, and grant them both common and supreme attainments.

After that Suryagupta composed a praise to the 21 Taras, as well as sadhanas and commentaries. He taught these to his student Chandragarbha, and over time this holy lineage was passed down through the ages until today through an unbroken line of sacred masters.

Suryagupta is famous for having many visions of Tara and began many lineages of her practice such as the Twenty-one Taras, Vajra Tara, Seventeen Deity Tara practice, and more. The Twenty-one Taras of Suryagupta is significantly different from the Twenty-one Taras of Dipamkara Atisha, in terms of iconography, as each Tara has a unique posture, colour and implements. The Dipamkara Atisha tradition, on the other hand, portrays each Tara in the same posture.

    Tara appears as a female bodhisattva is the “mother of liberation”, and represents the virtues of success in work and achievements. She is a favourite among many Tibetan Buddhist practitioners Wow …good to know there’s 21 Taras according to the Suryagupta lineage. I am glad to come across this article to increase my knowledge of Tara. Each of the 21 Taras manifests in different forms with different numbers of faces, arms, and widely differing gestures and attributes. We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing with us the prayers and practices of Tara. I have included the short Mantra in my daily Sadhana . May more people benefit from engaging in Tara’s practice to create a strong connection with Tara..
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing .

    This incredible White Tara was discovered in Indonesia. It is said to be 800 years old and made by Nagarjuna. A local person Mr. Supriyono dreamed of a bluish red dragon surrounding the village and splashing down into the well before finding Her. This beautiful White Tara was discovered in Indonesia.

    The 21 Taras, I think it covers all forms of problems and difficulty that sentient beings can encounter. So we are fortunate such practices are available to us to practice them. Cittamani Tara which is not covered here is a form of Tantric practices.

    I like it so much that the many Tara are given an Indian artist interpretation, very beautifully drawn pictures. May Tara inspire many men and women to take up her practices and become enlightened from it.

  4. Anne Ong on May 18, 2017 at 10:17 pm

    Thank you very much Rinpoche for this beautiful 21 Taras. I always love and have strong connection with Mother Tara,i believe. The iconography and explaination is very good and beautiful.I am looking forward to do social media on these 21 Taras soon. _/\_

  5. So Kin Hoe (KISG) on May 15, 2017 at 5:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the iconography, mantra and description of 21 Taras from the tradition of Mahasiddha Suryagupta. The background and explanation of each Tara’s manifestation from this article shows the completeness of Mother Tara’s practice to help all practitioners through Her skillful forms of manifestation. I am personally interested to focus more on Golden Colour Tara (Kanaka Vana Tara) as this manifestation of Mother Tara emphasizes on the 6 Paramitas practice, which are giving, moral discipline, patience, effort, concentration and wisdom.

    There are many benefits we can receive from Mother Tara’s practice inclusive of granting us virtuous wishes, overcoming obstacles and difficulties swiftly, bless us with protection, keep us away from harm and danger, pacifying illnesses, epidemics, diseases and our negativity, and ultimately Mother Tara can save us from internal and external 8 fears. Thus, Mother Tara is well-known in Buddhism and being practiced by all Buddhist lineages.

    May Mother Tara bless and protect all sentient beings from any harm and danger. Through Mother Tara’s prayer and practice, may all of us be freed from samsara and achieving Buddhahood with attainment and enlightenment.

    Thank you with folded hands,
    kin hoe

  6. Stella Cheang on May 12, 2017 at 10:20 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this comprehensive article of Tara according to the Suryagupta lineage. The 21 Taras depicted in Suryagupta lineage manifested in different forms with different iconographies. They have different numbers of faces, arms, hand mudras as well as attributes, which supplement each Tara’s unique ability to help sentient beings using different types of enlightened activities; i.e. pacifying, increasing, overpowering and wrathful.

    There are different lineages of the 21 Taras. Suryagupta’s 21 Tara depicts each Tara has a unique posture, color and implements. The Dipamkara Atisha tradition, on the other hand, portrays each Tara in the same posture. There are differences in terms of the manner in which the practice is bestowed to practitioners. In the Dipamkara Atisha tradition, tantric initiations for all 21 Taras are bestowed during one ceremony, whereas initiations are given for each manifestation in the Suryagupta tradition.

    We are very fortunate to have Rinpoche sharing here with us prayers and practices of Tara that does not need initiation. Anyone can just recite the prayers and mantras on this blog post to create a strong connection with Tara. May more people benefit from engaging in Tara’s practice.

  7. Uncle Eddie on May 10, 2017 at 5:11 pm

    Tara, The “Savioress”, a female Buddha, with a particularly long history of being worshiped by many great Indian and Tibetan masters. It is said that the earliest known image of Tara can be found today on the walls of the rock-cut Buddhist Monasteries complex of the Ellora caves in Maharashtra(7th century CE). Archaeology study established that the worship of Tara commenced during the period of the Pala Empire in Northeastern India in the 8th century CE. Scripturally, the earliest text on Tara is the ancient “Praise to the twenty-one Tara” which is said to be within the collection of the spoken words of Lord Buddha Shakyamuni, called ‘Kangyur’. Each of the twenty-one Tara that the Buddha specially named within the Praises actually corresponds to a particular emanation of Tara. Each of these emanations posses a different aspect of the same female Buddha Tara. It is said that Pravira, or the herioc red Tara is the first of the twenty-one Tara featured in the Suryaguptas Universe. As such, it is therefore this Tara, who corresponds to the first verse of the praise to the twenty-one Tara, which is called “Praising Tara by her life story” which reads as follows: “Homage to Tara, the swift one, the Herione, whose eyes are like a flash of lightning, who arose from the opening of a lotus, born from the tears of the Protector of the three Worlds.” Tara in all her manifestations is found virtually in every major shrine and monastery, many of these ancient images have shown miraculous signs in the past to many great masters. As such, these bear testament to the popularity of the worship of Tara. Tara is said to be universal, free from sects, free from schools of Buddhism and free from labels. Tara is a fully enlightened Buddha, whereupon anyone relying upon her will be blessed! May everyone sincerely be taken care of by Tara to have happiness, good heart and a long healthy life now and and in all long future lives too!

  8. Pastor David Lai on May 9, 2017 at 4:14 am

    Mother Tara is one of the most commonly worshipped female Buddhas in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon. She is a favourite of many Tibetan Buddhist practitioners and along with the various mental dispositions resulted in the wide variety of Tara emanations as antidote to these delusions. Each is unique with a unique ability to bless practitioners along with a sadhana and mantra to tap into this form of blessing.

    Due to the ancient ‘Praise to the 21 Taras’, it has become an accepted norm that there are 21 main emanations of Tara. The corresponding forms of Tara are bestowed as a mantra and sadhana for each form according to a particular lineage. What is believed to be the oldest is the Suryagupta lineage of the 21 Taras. These 21 Tara are bestowed as individual initiations for each of the 21 Taras. Of the 21 Taras in the lineage of Suryagupta, I find the wrathful and powerful 7th Tara Who Crushes Adversaries particularly exciting. I love the beautiful Indian renditions of realistic Taras very much.

  9. Paul Yap on May 8, 2017 at 9:54 pm

    Tara is one of my all time favourite Buddha, she has a very motherly energy that’s transcend all religion. I often saw Mother Tara statues at various Buddhist temple of different lineages and at Hindu temples too! Many has said that Green Tara and White Tara were manifested from the tears of Avalokitesvara, as such Tara also considered as the Buddha of Mercy – KuanYin in the Chinese traditions. There is no doubt that Tara’s is very popular and effective.

    Karma is not a punishment, it is a universal law. If there is a cause, there will be an effect. For example, if the food we eat is contaminated, we will surely get sick. By understanding how karma works, we can prevent a lot of unpleasant situations and make our life happier.

    Trode Khangsar – A 400-year-old Dorje Shugden Chapel in Lhasa

    The Trode Khangsar is an important chapel dedicated to Dorje Shugden in Lhasa, Tibet. It was built by His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama towards the end of the 17th Century. Dorje Shugden is an uncommon Dharma protector within Tibetan Buddhism, who is said to protect the Buddhist teachings in general and Nagarjuna’s Madhyamika (Middle Way) Philosophy as taught by Lama Tsongkhapa specifically.

    Lama Tsongkhapa was the founder of the great Gelug lineage. Dorje Shugden, in his previous incarnation as Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen, was a great scholar, meditator, teacher and contemporary of His Holiness the 5th Dalai Lama. After being murdered, Tulku Drakpa Gyeltsen arose as Dorje Shugden in order to benefit countless sentient beings.

    If the 5th Dalai Lama can build a chapel for Dorje Shugden and made the first statue of Dorje Shugden, I am sure that this protector is not an average protector to be relied on. Even the high attained master the 5th Dalai Lama will put such attention and important of Dorje Shugden shows that he is not an ordinary protector.

    H.H. Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche’s Sacred Vajra Yogini

    His Holiness Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche was a high attained lama that has pure visions of the Buddhas. One of the Buddhas that he has a direct vision is Buddha Vajrayogini. Vajrayogini appeared to him in the form similar to Naropa’s Vajrayogini but with a small difference. In his vision, Vajrayogini appeared to be looking straight at him. The rest of the body is exactly the same.

    It was said that this is a message from Vajrayogini to Pabongkha Rinpoche that she is empowering Pabongkha Rinpoche into her tantra and spread her tantra to many beings and it would be really beneficial for many beings.

    Kaybje Pabongka Rinpoche has a special affinity to this deity because Vajrayogini once promised him that those who have Vajrayogini initiation, she will bring them to Kechara Paradise in just 14 lifetimes. Those who are specifically in the 4 generations of the disciple of Pabongkha Rinpoche will ascent to Kechara paradise. This is an extra promise from Buddha Vajrayogini to Kyabje Pabongka Rinpoche.

    Wow, did you know there might be bigfoots in Malaysia? This is the first time I have heard of it. Someone in Puchong discovers 3 very big footprints but nobody knows whose footprints are these. What do you think? Are they really footprints of the bigfoots?

    Whether we believe or not, there are really some unseen beings. Sometimes people summon the unseen beings to ask for their future or simply out of curiosity. Unseen beings do have some power, some are very harmful. It is not advisable to establish a connection with them because we might be disturbed by them. Have you heard of Ouija Board before? It is something you should keep your distance away.

    Interesting article for our knowledge of these deadly disease. Zika virus disease is caused by a virus transmitted primarily by Aedes mosquitoes, which bite during the day. Most people with Zika virus infection do not develop symptoms. Zika virus infection during pregnancy can cause infants to be born with microcephaly and other congenital . Zika virus transmission has been reported in recent years, the World Health Organisation has declared the mosquito-borne Zika virus a threat internationally. They had done a research that the disease were linked to thousands of birth defects and are spreading rapidly. From Brazil spreading to America , South-east Asia, Cambodia, East Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand in recent years. Its still spreading due to the present of Aedes mosquitoes with tourist travelling abroad. Good sharing as it gives us knowledge of this virus.

    Science has proven that meditation have numerous benefits for everyone. It have shows meditation benefits human’s brains and behaviour. Hence teaching children or those young one in schools can give them a jump start to accessing the many benefits of meditating. And teaching them about meditation early would help them in a sense of security, empathy and inner stability. It helps them to builds compassion, joy, self-esteem and gain self-awareness and become more confident in their studies. In meditation may also help anyone to manage challenging conditions such as stress, depression and so forth. Introducing meditation in schools to can benefit them now and in the long run.
    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing.

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.

Hunting is a horrible \'sport\' because it is not necessary and unfair. Killing animals is vicious and inhuman. Hurting animals does not help us, our karma, our mind and it does not help the animals. Killing animals serves no benefit and it stunts our spiritual growth. Tsem Rinpoche

His Holiness Sharpa Choje Rinpoche Jetsun Lobsang Nyima of Gaden Shartse Monastery. He was a supreme master of both Sutra and Tantra. He served as abbot of both Gaden Shartse Monastery as well as Gyuto Tantric college. After serving as abbot of Gyuto Tantric college he entered into a few long term (3 year, 3 month and 3 day) Vajra Yogini retreats in the forest. He completed that long retreat twice and was going to enter it again till he was asked to be abbot of Gaden Shartse Monastery by H.H. the Dalai Lama. He was a great practitioner of Vajra Yogini\'s tantra as well as Dorje Shugden. He was a scholar of the highest renown and he was highly sought after for teachings. He was very devoted to Dorje Shugden throughout his whole life as a pure monk. I was fortunate enough to have him as one of my teachers. Humbly, Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
