White Tara’s chanting involves several words linked to long life and wellbeing.
Gesture and Posture of White Tara
She is depicted seating in 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.
