Tara Puja – Liberation from Sorrow
Held on 8th of each month
Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas. Her name means “Rescuer” because she rescues us from all outer and inner fears. Ultimately she rescues us from all suffering and guides us to full enlightenment. Like a mother she protects us from all internal and external dangers; she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path. These prayers include praises to the 21 manifestations of Tara.
We use the prayer booklet, ‘Liberation from Sorrow,’ for this puja. If you want to buy your own copy you can purchase it online – https://tharpa.com/uk/liberation-from-sorrow.html. An electronic verson of the booklet is available as well as the paper version. Also, the sadhana is included in ‘Modern Buddhism’ which is available as a free download.
