Joyful and peaceful, beautiful, and powerful, Tara is the embodiment of enlightened activity. She is a fully awakened Buddha, who vowed to work for all sentient beings as a female until samsara ends. She achieved liberation by following the same spiritual path many practitioners follow until this day. Known as the Liberator, she is always ready to rush to the aid of others.
Meditating on Green Tara can help us to connect with the energy of action, joy and compassion within ourselves. Tara can help to prevent hindrances and to discover and realize our true potential, all the way to enlightenment.
The ancient Mantra related to Green Tara is:
Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha
During the teachings, the teacher will explain the Heart Sutra with the purposeof enhancing our motivation, introduce deity yoga and the Tara Practice, and finally go through the Green Tara Sadhana.
