Praises to the Twenty-One Taras 5 & 6
Tara’s blessing is not a myth nor a groundless statement. Rather, if we pray to her and think of her constantly, we will undoubtedly experience the swift infusion of her blessing. Khenpo Sodargye Rinpoche says in the teaching of this Praise that, “Since I was young, I always thought of Tara as my mother and trust her exactly the same way I trust my own mother. When faced with a problem, my first thought is always ‘Tara, please come help me’.”
In the last two lectures of Praises to Twenty-one Taras, you will learn about the last eight praises of Tara, from the 14th to the 21st. You will learn how Tara protects beings from external harm, like harm from demonic spirits, poisons, epidemics, zombies, and many of the like, as well as from the inner afflictions and grasping. Because of Tara’s compassion, her blessing will reach out even to bad people. At the end of this course, Khenpo Rinpoche will express his wishes to those who attended this teaching.
