The Best White Tara Statues
Tara is known as the “mother of liberation” and represents prosperity accumulated in your work and achievements. However, there are many forms of Tara. One such form is found in our White Tara statues. Also known as “Sita Tara” she is associated with compassion, serenity, long life and healing. Additionally, White Tara is associated with the Cintachakra which is also known as the “wish fulfilling wheel”. Moreover, it is believed that she emanates with the glow of a thousand white moons.
White Tara Mantra
In Buddhism, bad health is thought to have its origins in defilements such as aversion, attachment and greed. As a result, to get to the core of the problem and be cured you must eliminate the defilements. A common method of White Tara practice is to recite the White Tara mantra. Therefore, she may recognize your dedication and inspire you to defeat the defilements and over come illness. This White Tara mantra is:
“Om Tare Tuttare Ture Mama Ayuh Punya Jñana Pustim Kuru Svaha”.
The mantra encourages devotees to live an ethical life and practice meditation. As a result, it is very potent in helping to overcome and permanently extinguish the defilements. By reciting this mantra and fulfilling it’s meaning it may enhance happiness, well being and long life.
The Feminist Bodhisattva
Other notable features of Tara include her feminist sympathies. In fact, she has pledged to forgo enlightenment until she can reach the level of Buddha as a female. Even after she had accomplished the many steps on the bodhisattva path she still refused to be reincarnated as a male. This is because she feels there are too few female Buddhas and she is determined to change that.
