TC 3069 Healing Practices of White Tara
Healing and Self-Healing Through Tara (Restricted) Transcript Gehlek Rimpoche, 1996. revised and extended edition, 1999.
Healing Practices based on the deity Tara, a manifestation of the active aspect of the compassion of all enlightened beings.
This is a unique transcript! Never before in the West, a Tibetan teacher gave such a detailed explanation about special visualization techniques concerned with healing and self-healing. It is also unique in as far as that part of it comes from the secret treasure-chambers of tantra. The transcript has drawn images of visualizations, and Tibetan syllables have been transferred into Western syllable-symbols. Recommended warmly! third revised edition.
Must have Highest Yoga Tantra Initiation to Read. If you like to read the restricted transcripts and be able to understand them properly, it is important that you receive a Highest Yoga Tantra initiation from a qualified teacher.
The story goes that Green Tara and White Tara were born from two tears shed by Avalokiteshvara, who embodies the compassion of all the Buddhas. Tara embodies the active facet of this compassion.
Tara is archetypal for female strength and wisdom, the way it is present in every individual all throughout the universe. She's called Mother of the Buddhas because buddhahood can only come from the right view of the ultimate reality.
Because wisdom is the primeval source from which everything stems, you could, in a way, see Tara as the buddhist portrayal of the Mother-goddess.
Green Tara is known as the liberator who, out of compassion, protects against suffering in samsara and against the eight forms of fear. These are the fear of pride, the fear of ignorance, the fear of wrong view, the fear of attachment, the fear of anger, the fear of jealousy, the fear of miserliness and the fear of doubt.
White Tara embodies maternal love, healing power, and the power to both give life and prolong life.
Practicing Tara creates a resistance against fears en all sorts of ill-making factors and with that, is geared toward a long and healthy life, which in its turn is so very important to practice the Dharma.
Apart from these "ordinary" powers, extraordinary powers are developed through Tara: love and the right view, which lead to inner peace and freedom.
By receiving an initiation from a teacher and familiarizing ourselves with the practice of Tara we mobilize and develop self-healing powers, which we can use not only for ourselves, but also for the benefit of others.
