The Green Tara Mantra

Green Tara Mantra

Om Tare Tuttare Ture Svaha

Green Tara, one of the manifestations of Guan Yin (Avalokiteshvara). According to The Origin of Tara, Guan Yin was teaching Dharma for the benefit of sentient beings. While seeing the endless number of beings torn in samsara, tears filled her eyes. As a tear dropped, it turned into Green Tara. The meaning of the Green Tara Mantra is, “I pay homage to the saviouress, the mother of all the supreme ones. She who liberates beings from the samsaric ocean can lead all to accomplish the perfect enlightenment.” By practicing the Green Tara Mantra, all the beings can cut through the samsaric root, be free from suffering, and obtain the ultimate happiness. One is protected from demonic influences, illnesses, natural disasters, and manmade threats, etc. Not only one’s wisdom, merit, and longevity would enhance, one would inspire to engender the supreme bodhicitta that resonates with Buddhas, bodhisattvas, and the entire dharmadhatu. The benefit of upholding the Green Tara Mantra is inconceivable.
