Blue Tara


Blue Tara


Who is Blue Tara?

Buddhist tradition tells us that Tara was born out of the tears of compassion of the bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, who was filled with grief as he looked upon the world of suffering beings. From the lake of his tears a lotus sprung up and opened to reveal the goddess Tara. She sits with one foot in lotus, as a symbol of her commitment to inner work and peace, and the other outstretched, ready to stand and be of service to others. Worshipped as the embodiment of compassion, she is believed to help her followers overcome dangers, fears, and anxieties; ferrying all sentient beings across the ocean of samsara to enlightened peace. 

Tara is said to manifest in limitless forms, to all religions and to all people, as the divine feminine. 

Blue Tara is the wrathful manifest form of Tara. She acts as an arrow, swift and pointed to destroy the afflictions of the mind. In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, wrathful deities are not feared but admired. Garchen Rinpoche writes, 

"The transformation that occurs when the afflictive emotions are subdued with the sharp discriminating awareness is the arising of the wrathful deities... Through the power of awareness the afflictive emotions collapse, and this collapsing reveals their true nature, primordial wisdom. This collapsing or transformation is the wrathful deity."

May Tara guide us to compassionate action for the peace of all by first helping us find our peace within
