The female Buddha White Tara is one of the main longevity deities in the Tibetan Buddhist pantheon.

White Tara, also known as the Wish-fulfilling Wheel or Cintachakra, represents the enlightened and liberating activity of all the buddhas.

In particular, she is associated with longevity and healing. As the embodiment of universal compassion, White Tara’s desire to save beings from suffering is said to be even stronger than a mother’s love for her children.

She is especially known for her swiftness in responding to the prayers of those who invoke her name.

Her meditation practice can be done to prolong your life and to overcome illnesses and other life-threatening obstacles. You can also offer an image of White Tara to a baby to wish that this newly born may have a long life ahead.

White Tara is a representation of compassion, and she is pictured as having seven eyes to symbolize the compassionate mind’s watchfulness.

Gesture and Posture of White Tara

She has depicted seating in a lotus position with the soles of her feet pointing upward.

Her left-hand holds a beautiful blue lotus flower and her right hand is extended to her knee in the mudra of compassion.

She has seven eyes symbolizing her power to see human afflictions. The name Tara means “the one who saves” and she has the power to alleviate people from suffering.

Another power of White Tara is to generate energy for good health and longevity.

To present a newborn baby with a thangka painting of White Tara is considered to bring good fortune and wish a long life ahead.

Why Pray White Tara?

Pray to White Tara for protection, healing, and immortality. She gives healing to our wounds, either it is the unhappy mind or physically ill bodies.

Tara, like a mother to her son, is very similar to the sentient beings. She quickly fulfills our wishes and brings us happiness and long life, as well as help us grow wisdom.

One has the power to eliminate barriers to your life and to extend your life by taking refuge in Tara and by practicing meditation, visualization, and having confidence.

White Tara has 7 eyes, 3 in her face and 4 on her hand palms and foot soles.
