Noble Tara, The Liberating Mother

An Oral Commentary on the "Praises to the Twenty-One Taras"

Praise for Noble Tara, The Liberating Mother

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has said that there are many inner obstacles to the development of the mind, and these inner obstacles create many outer obstacles. For the success of our Dharma practice we must rely upon a special deity, or buddha, such as Tara, upon whom many Indian yogis and Tibetan lamas have relied. She is quick to grant success in obtaining the ultimate happiness of enlightenment, liberation and better rebirths and there are many temporal benefits from reciting the Tara mantra or the prayer to the Twenty-one Taras as well. In this book, Kurukulla Center’s Resident Teacher, the highly qualified Geshe Ngawang Tenley, gives a clear explanation of the practice of the Twenty-one Taras that will benefit experienced practitioners and beginners alike, and through them, all sentient beings.

Geshe Tenley's commentary on the practice of the 21 Taras is a beautiful companion for anyone, beginner or more seasoned practitioner alike, wishing to gain a deeper understanding of the practice. If you have ever watched or listened to Geshe Tenley reciting the Tara Praises you know that he has a deep connection
with the subject at hand.
